Catering to the Indian market with locally produced products is a step in the right direction for Apple as it looks to diversify its supply chain away from China.
Despite Foxconn, a partner of Apple, beginning manufacturing at the Chennai site just days after the global introduction, it took Apple almost a month to make the iPhone 14 available in the nation.
Apple intends to introduce the iPhone 15 in India at the same time as the rest of the world. In spite of Foxconn, Apple’s partner, starting manufacturing at the Chennai site just days after the global debut, it took around a month for Apple to make the iPhone 14 available in the nation last year. Along with a global debut, the built in India iPhone 15 is expected to arrive in stores this year. Apple will initially use the local goods to serve India before beginning to sell the devices to Europe and the US by the end of 2023.
According to media sources, China started producing the iPhone 15 in June of this year. Catering to the Indian market with locally made smartphones is a significant step in the direction Apple is trying to take in terms of diversifying its supply chain away from China.
According to Tim Cook, Apple broke revenue records in Q3 2023 with sales rising by double digits in India, the third-largest smartphone market in the world. Apple is currently India’s top exporter of smartphones.
On September 12, Apple will debut the iPhone 15 at an occasion named Wonderlust. The regular iPhone 15 and 15 Plus models, as well as the premium iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, are among the four iPhone models that Apple is most likely to release. It’s important to remember that just the iPhone 15 model is now produced in India. It’s expected that the other three models will follow.
The 2023 iPhones would receive power supply through a USB-C connection, according to the expected modifications. The standard iPhone 15 and 15 Plus support USB 2.0, whereas the Pro variants feature USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3. While the Dynamic Island is anticipated for the whole iPhone 15 series lineup, the Pro models may also receive the titanium frame with smaller bezels around the display. Color-coded cables and new camera sensors likely come in the package.
