Apple has begun manufacturing its latest iPhone model, the iPhone 14, in India as part of the tech giant’s attempts to broaden its supply network outside of China.
A few weeks ago, the company launched its latest iPhone.
The most recent version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS, has a number of enhancements, including improved camera functionality, a more engaging lock screen, and, on Pro models, significantly increased processing speed.
The business also unveiled new safety features, including a tool for an emergency SOS and car crash detection technologies.
Foxconn, Wistron, and Pegatron of Taiwan produce Apple products in India, but the business normally begins producing models there just seven to eight months after they are introduced.
Analysts have long predicted that Apple would lessen its reliance on China.
Earlier this year, The Wall Street Journal reported that the company was aiming to increase production in nations like Vietnam and India, citing one of the reasons as China’s tight Covid policy.
In spite of the fact that the corporation produces the vast majority of its goods in China, it has made the decision to initiate production of its most recent devices in India a great deal sooner than it did with former generations of products.
