Apple is all set to introduce the “made in India” iPhone 13 soon. The trial production of the newly-launched iPhone 13 series has already begun in the Foxconn plant near Chennai. The Cupertino-giant is expected to start the commercial production of iPhone 13 in India for the domestic market as weak as for exports by February 2022.
As per Economic Times report, Apple wants to make all its top-selling smartphone models in India. Apple will start manufacturing iPhone 13 for the domestic markets as well as for the exports by February. The report further reveals that Apple has secured supply semiconductor chips, which are not readily available. The supply of the semiconductor chips that Apple has secured is in short supply across the world.
The ET reports state that the iPhone 13 production in India will help Apple in improving supplies of the model into its global markets. Interestingly, Apple already produces iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 at India’s Foxconn play and the second-generation iPhone SE at the Wistron plant in Bengaluru. As per the report, Apple makes 70 percent of the smartphones it sells in India, which includes the best-selling models including the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 12, iPhone XR and iPhone SE and soon iPhone 13 will join the list of best-selling smartphones that will be produced in India.
