Foxconn began assembling the Apple iPhone 15 in India and China almost simultaneously

Last year, Apple contractors in India launched the then-latest smartphone family, the iPhone 14, with a delay of just a few weeks, compared to the usual six or nine months compared to Chinese sites. In the case of the start of assembly of the iPhone 15 in India, everything will go even faster, since it has already been launched at the Foxconn plant, with a minimal delay behind China.

Accordingly Bloomberg Citing knowledgeable sources, Foxconn’s Indian plant in Tamil Nadu is preparing to begin shipments of the latest iPhone 15 with minimal delay compared to the company’s Chinese assembly sites. By March of this year, Apple increased the share of Indian-made smartphones in the structure of its shipments to 7%, and in the future it will only grow. This is important both in terms of diversifying the political risks associated with China and in terms of strengthening Apple’s position in the Indian domestic market.

As already mentioned, the production volume of the iPhone 15 in India will depend on Foxconn’s ability to import the required number of components, since many of them are not yet produced in this country. In addition to Foxconn, Pegatron and Wistron also want to start assembling the iPhone 15 in India, with Wistron soon to sell its company to the Indian conglomerate Tata Group. In the fiscal year that ended in March, Apple tripled revenue from sales of smartphones assembled in India to more than $7 billion. In April, Apple opened its first two branded stores in India. In the second quarter, iPhone sales in the local market increased by double-digit percentages to a record high.
