Apple Begins iPhone 13 Production in India

The Index Today

Apple Inc. on Monday announced that it has begun manufacturing iPhone 13 in India as the tech giant seeks to slash its dependence on its Chinese supply chain.

According to Reuters, Foxconn’s plant in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu, is the focus of iPhone 13’s manufacture in India. The iPhone 13 is the fourth iPhone model to be manufactured domestically after Apple commenced production in the country in 2017 with the iPhone SE model.

This comes as Apple continues to move its iPhone production efforts from China to India, which is the second largest smartphone market in the world. American companies have, of late, been looking at other countries like India, Mexico and Vietnam to expand their production initiatives as they make the shift from China.
