My iphone 12 didn't come with earbuds or a charging box

I ordered the iphone 12 form ATT and it didn't come with earbuds or a charging box. Just a charging cord. Is that standard?

just saw this

Apple’s new iPhone 12 lineup will ship without wall chargers or Lightning EarPods in the box to reduce the phone’s environmental impact, the company announced today. Instead, they’ll come with just a USB-C to Lightning cable. As well as the new phones, Apple is also removing the accessories from its existing iPhone models going forward.

Apple says it’s not including a charger or earbuds with the iPhone 12 series on environmental grounds; similarly, it didn’t include a charging brick with this year’s Apple Watch models.

As well as not shipping the accessories with its new phones, Apple is also removing wall chargers and Lightning earbuds from the older iPhones in its lineup that it’ll continue selling. On Apple’s site, listings for the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, and 2020 iPhone SE now say that they only ship with a phone and USB-C to Lightning cable in the box.

Although I don't fully believe Apple's claim that this is solely for the environment, I believe Apple has generally increased iPhone prices at a rate lower than inflation, even though each iPhone is a big improvement over the previous model. iPhone is still an excellent value.
