Apple has diversified its supply chain in recent years and has a strong desire to manufacture its products in India. Reports from the beginning of this year show that the technology giant from Cupertino has decided to transfer about 25% of iPhone production to India by 2025, and the latest report Ming Chi Ku also confirms this.
According to KoThe base model of the iPhone 17 will be produced exclusively in India in the second half of 2024, and predictions show that the phone will be released in 2025.
The important thing about iPhone 17 is that it is the first time that Apple starts the production of one of its phones outside of China. Ko It says that the standard model of this phone has been chosen for manufacturing in India due to the less difficult manufacturing process and less risk.
We expect the iPhone 17 series to be released in the fall of 2025. On the other hand, Apple started assembling the iPhone in India in 2017, and Tata Electronics recently bought 100% of the shares of Wistron’s assembly units in India by paying about $125 million.
It remains to be seen what effect the production of the standard iPhone 17 model in India will have on Apple’s production line and whether there will be a change in the price of the said phone or not.
