The tech giant To support India’s goal of becoming a manufacturing powerhouse in the future, Apple has begun producing the iPhone 13 in the country. Foxconn, Apple’s Taiwanese contract manufacturing partner, will produce the company’s flagship product near Chennai.
According to an Apple statement, “We are excited to begin making the iPhone 13 with its beautiful design, advanced camera systems for stunning photos and videos, and the incredible performance of the A15 Bionic chip right here in India for our local customers,” Apple said.
Apple has been moving parts of its iPhone production from China to other markets, including India, the world’s second-largest smartphone market, and it plans to assemble iPad tablets there as well.
Contract manufacturers supplying American brands are increasingly turning to countries like India, Mexico, and Vietnam as they seek to diversify production away from China.
A year after starting production in India, Apple has released the iPhone 13 as its fourth domestically manufactured model, following the iPhone SE.
In September 2020, Apple launched its online store and plans to expand its presence in the country with the launch of the Apple Store. Thanks to its powerful A15 Bionic chip, the new iPhone 13 offers a cutting-edge 5G experience with lightning-fast speed and incredible power efficiency.
Apple began producing iPhones in India in 2017 with the iPhone SE, which is worth mentioning. Some of its most advanced iPhones, such as the iPhone 11, the iPhone 12, and now the iPhone 13, are currently manufactured in the country.
