Apple expands iPhone production in India in shift away from China
Apple has begun producing its iPhone 14 model in southern India less than a month after it was launched, as the company works to diversify its supply chains out of China and expand production in India.
“We’re excited to be manufacturing iPhone 14 in India,” the company said in a statement on Monday. Apple’s Taiwanese contract manufacturers already assemble some of the company’s existing models in India.
Apple, which makes most of its iPhones in China, has been shifting some of its production outside the country as geopolitical tension rises between Washington and Beijing. China’s harsh pandemic policies with sweeping lockdowns have also disrupted business.
