Apple's New iPhone 14 to Show India's Aim efforts of Closing the Technology Gap With China

Apple Inc. intends to begin manufacturing the iPhone 14 in India around two months after the product's initial release outside of China, lowering but not totally bridging the gap between the two countries, as some had predicted, per Bloomberg. 

According to people familiar with the situation, the company has been working with suppliers to scale up manufacturing in India and reduce the gap in production of the new iPhone from the customary six to nine months for past launches. Apple, which has long manufactured the majority of its iPhones in China, is looking for alternatives as Xi Jinping's administration conflicts with the US government and imposes nationwide lockdowns that have hindered economic activity.

Analysts like Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities Group believe Apple would ship the new iPhone from both nations at around the same time, which would be a significant milestone in Apple's efforts to diversify its supply chain and build redundancy.

According to the people who asked not to be identified because the efforts are confidential, Foxconn Technology Group, the primary manufacturer of iPhones, studied the process of shipping components from China and assembling the iPhone 14 device at its plant outside the southern Indian city of Chennai. This included looking into solutions to maintain Apple's strict secrecy standards.

According to the sources, Apple and Foxconn eventually determined that a simultaneous launch in India and China is not feasible this year, although it remains a long-term aim. Following the initial September release, the first iPhone 14s from India is expected to be completed in late October or November. One participant suggested that the Diwali celebration, which begins on October 24, would be an ambitious objective.
