Apple has been manufacturing iPhones in India for a few years, and the iPhone 13 will begin mass production in India in February 2022, according to The Economic Times.
According to the report, Apple has secured the supply of semiconductor chips needed for mass manufacturing and has already begun trial production of the iPhone 13 at Foxconn’s plant near Chennai, where the tech giant also manufactures the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12.
In addition to the Foxconn plant in Chennai, Apple makes the iPhone SE at the Wistron plant in Bengaluru, and according to estimates, the corporation manufactures roughly 70% of the iPhones sold in India locally.
Producing the iPhone 13 in India might not only help Apple lower the price of the latest iPhone in the domestic market, but it should also assist increase supply worldwide, as 20-30% of iPhones built in India are often shipped to global markets.
While Apple is set to begin commercial production of the iPhone 13 in India in February, a source says the company has no plans to produce the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max in the world’s second-largest smartphone market.
