In a bid to diversify its smartphone production from China, US tech giant Apple is set to manufacture some of its iPhone 14 models in India.

According to GSM Arena, this news comes from a new Bloomberg report that also details Apple’s plans to ramp up production with contract manufacturer Foxconn at its assembly plant near Chennai. Foxconn will not be able to start immediate production of the iPhone 14 in India and will have to wait at least two months after the start of initial production of the iPhone 14 series in China, GSM Arena reported.

This implies that the first batch of Indian-made iPhone 14 models will likely be ready between late October and early November.

Apple and Foxconn are also working hard to reduce manufacturing times from nine to six months currently.

One of the critical factors for Apple and its product manufacturing process is privacy and the Cupertino-based company is reportedly looking to enforce its strict rules alongside Foxconn on assembly lines in India.

Meanwhile, Apple, which usually holds a big event in the first part of September, might be aiming for a September 7 date for its next product launch event.

At the show, Apple would announce the iPhone 14 lineup, which is expected to include the base iPhone 14, a new large-screen iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, according to The Verge. (ANI)
