软餐获悉，苹果公司明确表示反对印度政府拟定的一项法规，该法规效仿了欧盟，强制要求手机厂商将 USB-C 作为设备的通用充电端口。印度政府希望 2025 年 6 月之前推行该法规。目前只有 iPhone 15 型号具有 USB-C 端口，其他型号为闪电端口。苹果表示，如果要执行该法规，它将无法按照承诺在印度生产尽可能多的 iPhone。苹果公司将难以实现印度生产挂钩激励 (PLI) 计划设定的生产目标（PLI 是总理纳伦德拉·莫迪 (Narendra Modi) 的一个重要项目，每年为印度电子制造商提供新投资和增量手机销售的财政激励措施），毕竟印度政府希望在本国生产尽可能多的硬件。印度生产的 iPhone 多是旧款型号，这些型号因为低廉的价格在印度很畅销，如果该法规实施，旧款 iPhone 可能不得不停产。苹果希望当局延迟实施该法规，或对苹果进行豁免。印度政府稍后将决定该法律的具体实施。
Apple has explicitly stated its opposition to a proposed regulation by the Indian government, which imitates the European Union. This law mandates that smartphone manufacturers use USB-C as the universal charging port for devices. The Indian government aims to implement this regulation by June 2025. Currently, only the iPhone 15 model has a USB-C port, while all other models have Lightning ports. Apple states that if it were to comply with this regulation, it would be unable to produce as many iPhones in India as promised. It would also struggle to meet the production targets set by the Production-Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme, an important project of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that provides financial incentives for new investments and incremental sales of mobile phones by Indian electronic manufacturers each year. After all, the Indian government desires increased hardware production within their country. Many iPhones produced in India are older models that sell well due to their affordable prices; however, if this regulation is implemented, these older iPhone models may have to be discontinued. Apple hopes that authorities will delay implementing this law or grant exemptions for Apple’s products. The specific implementation of this law will be decided by the Indian government at a later date.
