The giant American company Apple has given another blow to China. Another of its suppliers, Pegatron, has started manufacturing (assembling) the iPhone 14 in India. This is Apple’s second supplier and only the third company to manufacture the iPhone 14 in India. The Bloomberg report states that the Indian government’s policies to attract foreign companies and China’s strict policy regarding Kovid are beginning to show their effect.

Actually, Apple is trying to reduce its dependence on China. Apart from this, due to the increasing case of corona, there is a lockdown in China. Thousands of employees of Apple’s largest manufacturing unit Foxconn are suffering from Corona. That’s why the work has stopped there. Foxconn has been making the iPhone 14 in India since September, fearing a drop in production. Apple currently manufactures the iPhone SE, iPhone 12, iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 models in India.

PLI scheme eases Apple’s path
The report said that India is positioning itself as a competitor to China’s manufacturing capacity. In addition, due to rising tensions between the US and China and Beijing’s Kovid zero policy, Apple is looking for alternative production centers. The Indian government made the center election easier for Apple by announcing the Production Based Incentive (PLI) scheme.

  • iPhone makers Foxconn, Wistron and Pegatron are in the expansion stage in India. In China, companies are looking to increase iPhone production before the New Year, but this is not possible due to Corona.
