One out of four Apple iPhones might be made in India by 2025 according to J.P. Morgan analysts.
Their estimates also suggest 25% of all Apple products will be built outside of China by 2025. As for the iPhone 14, Apple is expected to move 5% of the production capacity to India from late 2022.
India is emerging as a manufacturing hub for Apple. Foxconn announced in 2019 that it was ready to mass produce new iPhones in India. The country had been manufacturing older iPhone models for a few years.
In 2020, Foxconn reportedly invested $1 billion in India to make iPhones. Economic Times also claimed that year that Apple was exploring the possibility of moving nearly 20% of its iPhone production from China to India. Earlier this year, The Wall Street Journal says Apple informed contract manufacturers to expand production outside of China to India and Southeast Asia.
