Apple to manufacture iPhone 14 in India simultaneosly with China: Report

Apple is likely to launch the iPhone 14 series in September this year, and according to reports, the series will be produced in India simultaneously with China.

In an effort to reduce reliance on China in the wake of recent geopolitical tensions, the Cupertino-based company will manufacture the Apple iPhone 14 series, including iPhone 14, iPhone Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max, in India, industrially. analyst Ming-Chi said Kuo on Twitter.

Foxconn’s iPhone manufacturing site in India will reportedly begin shipping iPhone 14 models with Chinese manufacturers, Kuo said in his tweets.

Although Apple has been producing iPhone in India for a few years now, production in the country is a quarter or more less than in China, according to reports.

Foxconn’s site will reportedly produce the iPhone 14 models with a 6.1-inch screen, reportedly vanilla iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. Meanwhile, iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max will reportedly have 6.7-inch screens.

India’s manufacturing sites will lag China in iPhone shipments for now, Kuo said. However, it could be a “major milestone” for the tech giant to establish a non-Chinese manufacturing site amid recent geopolitical developments. Apple would also target the Indian market as it could be the next key region to drive the company’s growth.

According to reports, Apple will launch iPhone 14 at the same price as iPhone 13, at $799 (approximately Rs 64,000).
