The production base is known in the world as China, but this has been changing lately. India is one of the countries where production has shifted. Apple plans to shift 25% of iPhone production to India to reduce dependency on China.
25% of iPhone production will shift to India by 2025
It has been claimed that Apple will move 25 percent of all iPhone production to India by 2025 in order to diversify its supply chain. Apple is currently continuing iPhone 13s production in India. Recently, other iPhones, including the recently introduced iPhone 14s, will go into shift in this country.
Apple’s supply chain is largely concentrated in China. However, the company has increased its efforts recently to move suppliers and production lines to other locations. Analysts believe this transition will happen gradually.
According to reports, by the end of 2022, 5 percent of iPhone 14 production will be carried out in India. It is planned to increase this amount in the following 3 years. According to analysts’ statements, Apple aims to make 25 percent of iPhone production in this country by 2025.
In addition to iPhone models, the US technology company is also making plans to move 25 percent of the production of all its devices, including AirPods, Macs, Apple Watches and iPads, to India. Apple suppliers have also increased their investments in India in line with the company’s goals.
Apple suppliers, including Foxconn, have invested heavily in India over the past few years in supply chain infrastructure, factories and training. With these investments, iPhone 14 production is expected to start in India in the coming weeks.
We know that many companies left Russia with the start of the war between Russia and Ukraine. Or that it imposes some sanctions. Therefore, it would be correct to interpret these decisions not only economically but also politically. Because India is located in Asia and is a great ally of the west.
