Apple steps up iPhone 14 production shift to India

Bloomberg reports that Apple has found a new assembly partner for the iPhone 14 production line in India as part of an effort to diversify its manufacturing base outside of China.

Taiwanese contract manufacturer Pegatron will produce the iPhone 14 models in India, following Foxconn, which began doing so in September.

Foxconn, Wistron, and Pegatron’s iPhone production facilities in India are where Apple’s Taiwanese assembly partners made the iPhone 11, iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and most recently the iPhone 14. The interval between Chinese and Indian output for the most recent model has decreased significantly from months to weeks.

Apple’s Taiwanese assembly partners Foxconn, Wistron, and Pegatron’s iPhone manufacturing facilities in India are where the iPhone 11, iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and most recently the iPhone 14 are all made. With the manufacturing of the most recent model, the time difference between Chinese and Indian output has shrunk from months to weeks.

Apple is playing a long game by shifting its production lines away from China, one that won’t have a significant influence on its supply chain for many years. According to a recent Bloomberg article, it would take eight years to relocate just 10 per cent of Apple’s production capacity from China, where over 98 per cent of iPhones are still produced.
