Bloomberg reported Tuesday that Apple Inc. signals the possible arrival of the production facility for the iPhone 14 in India. The news came after the company decided to launch its upcoming model two months after production started in China. Bloomberg further indicated that this decision would eventually reduce the timeframe of previous launches from six to nine months. You can expect the first iPhone 14s to be ready for sale in India in early September as the company has made efforts in the manufacturing facility to further speed up the process and also keep up with suppliers.
Production is expected to be completed in late October or November, but the first few models will be released in September to raise public awareness of the process. In conjunction with this, Apple’s Taiwan-based supplier of China, Foxconn, has also tried to optimize the concept by taking control of the supply of the shipping items from China and then assembling them together at its factory in the southern city of India, chennai.
In addition to India, the US is also looking for opportunities to set up its own manufacturing facility rather than relying on China for its strict lockdown rules and regulations, which would otherwise hamper market sales. Not only this, but Beijing is also facing some clashes with Washington, and the case is forcing the US to look into building its own factory. On the other hand, India is known as the second largest market for smartphones, and in addition to setting up an iPhone manufacturing facility, Apple will also grant access to India for iPad tablet production.
We can analyze the situation that Apple has big plans to diversify its products around the world by setting up production facilities in specific locations. It was also recently reported that Apple is looking for a production facility for the Apple Watch and MacBook in Vietnam. If this happens, it would be the first time in Vietnam to witness this!
