Apple should no longer provideheadphones in his next iPhone 12. The brand has already withdrawn the power adapter from the latest Apple Watches.

EarPods could disappear for environmental reasons
The latest beta of iOS 14.2, the future operating system update that should accompany the various iPhone 12s, seems to confirm the abandonment of headphones.
In the update code, an informational text relating to protection against radio waves emitted by the iPhone has been changed by Apple. In iOS 14, the company indicates that it is possible to use " headphones provided »Whereas iOS 14.2 only evokes the use of headphones, without any other mention.
The change is subtle, but tends to prove that Apple wants to get rid of the Earpods like it should with the AC adapter.
Last September, the manufacturer removed the accessory from the latest Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE. The brand was then justified by evoking ecological reasons and its objective to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030.

The withdrawal of EarPods is not a big surprise, as Apple has long sought to position itself as an exemplary green company.
This also allows it to save a few euros in passing on its manufacturing costs, which represents a significant sum of more than 200 million devices produced and sold each year.
Apple will however come up against French legislation which requires manufacturers to include an accessory to limit exposure to radio waves, a hands-free kit therefore.
