Apple’s brand new iPhone 14 is now being assembled in India at the Foxconn plant near Chennai. This marks the first time Apple is manufacturing one of its latest generation iPhones just weeks after its announcement. The first batch of made in India iPhone 14 units are expected to hit shelves later this year.
Apple started assembling iPhones in India back in 2017 with the first generation iPhone SE model. Since then we’ve seen most major release iPhones made in India with the iPhone 13 being the latest one prior to the iPhone 14.
The new iPhone 14 lineup introduces groundbreaking new technologies and important safety capabilities. We’re to be manufacturing iPhone 14 in India.
Apple will save up on import duties with its newly made in India iPhones. Looking ahead, J.P. Morgan predicts that Apple may manufacture up to 25% of all iPhones in India by 2025.
