Apple said in a statement to PTI;
“We are extremely excited to start manufacturing iPhone 14 in India. The new iPhone 14 lineup comes with new technologies and significant security capabilities.”
This news becomes even more important as a recent JP Morgan report titled ‘Apple Supply Chain Relocation’ states that Apple will shift 5% of iPhone 14 production to India by the end of 2022. And by 2025 this figure may reach 25%.
The report also predicts that the company could move about 25% of the total production of all Apple products outside of China to other countries by 2025, up from about 5% now.
According to experts, the current tension between the US and China is having a direct impact on trade between them, and that is why even large American companies do not want to completely depend on China for production.
