Apple to manufacture iPhone 14 in India; plans to bring it on par with China
September is usually the month of the launch of a new iPhone. Apple is set to bring its new flagship iPhone 14 and an array of other products into the market. However, the biggest news might not be the launch of the phone, albeit, where it might be produced.
According to reports, Apple is planning to begin the manufacturing of the iPhone 14 in India. The company has already started working with its local suppliers, here in India to speed up the production pace to cut down the manufacturing time of the new smartphone.
Reportedly iPhone 13 started manufacturing in India, six-seven months after it was launched last year in September. Apple is attempting to reduce the gap and bring it on par with China.
Taiwanese tech giant Foxconn which is the primary manufacturer of the iPhone has studied a route where components can be shipped from China and assembled at the company's plant, outside the southern Indian city of Chennai.
Accordingly, iPhone 14s is expected to be shipped from the Indian factory by the end of October or early November. However, Apple and Foxconn remain committed to their long-term goal of starting the manufacturing process simultaneously in India and China.
