Foxconn, a key supplier for Apple, has started manufacturing the iPhone 15 in India as part of its strategy to diversify production away from China. The Sriperumbudur plant is set to produce the new phones shortly after they start shipping from China-based facilities. This move aligns with Apple’s efforts to broaden its supply chain due to increasing tensions between the U.S. and China. The Biden administration has imposed restrictions on technology flow and investment into China, prompting Apple to explore alternative manufacturing locations. The company has been increasing iPhone production in India, contributing to more than $7 billion worth of production there in the past fiscal year. Other manufacturers like Pegatron and a Wistron factory under Tata Group’s acquisition are also slated to begin assembling the iPhone 15 in India. This diversification aims to reduce reliance on China and enhance Apple’s presence in the Indian market.
