Last year, Apple began trial production of the phone at its manufacturing partner Foxconn in India. The company is already manufacturing iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 in India. Production of Apple’s latest iPhone 13 model also began on Monday. According to PTI, Apple has started production of the iPhone 13 at its Foxconn plant in Chennai. Previously, the first iPhone model iPhone SE was made in India, which was announced by the company in 2017. Apple has made deals with smartphone manufacturers Foxconn and Wistron. These companies are partners to assemble iPhones in India. Last year, India saw an increase in iPhone sales. Premium phones have seen a 44% increase. The government has approved 16 companies, including Foxconn, Wistron and Pegatron, for 2020 under the Product-Linked Incentive Scheme to boost domestic smartphone production. The three companies plan to invest a total of around Rs 6.8 billion in India over the next five years.
Apple’s latest iPhone will be ‘Made in India’. In that case, the price is likely to drop. However, the company did not respond to a request for comment. But Apple could lower the cost of making these phones. Apple has plants in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. On the other hand, Taiwan’s Pegatron may also start iPhone 12 production in India this month.
