  • Apple will start production of the iPhone 14 simultaneously in India and China.
  • By increasing iPhone production in India and Brazil, Apple may gradually reduce its dependence on China; however, it will be very difficult to materialize this decision.
  • The iPhone 14, which is rumored to be launched in September, could be the first one to be produced simultaneously in India along with China, where a majority of Apple devices are manufactured, according to prominent analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Tech giant Apple is likely planning to ship its next-generation iPhone 14 simultaneously from factories in China and India, a renowned analyst said on Friday.

Ming-Chi Kuo took to microblogging site Twitter to say that his latest survey indicates Foxconn’s iPhone production site in India will ship the new 6.1-inch iPhone 14 almost simultaneously with China for the first time in the second half of 2022 (India being one quarter or more behind in the past).

“In the short term, India’s iPhone capacities/shipments still have a considerable gap with China, but it is an important milestone for Apple in building a non-Chinese iPhone production site,” Kuo wrote on Twitter.

“It implies that Apple is trying to reduce the geopolitical impacts on supply and sees the Indian market as the next key growth driver,” he added. Meanwhile, Apple iPads logged an impressive 34% growth (on-year) in India, and the company sold over 0.2 million devices in the country.

The iPhone 14 lineup includes the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max, which is the top of the pick. The tech giant has likely discontinued the 5.4-inch iPhone mini this year.
