In recent years, the Cupertino boys have been making significant investments in India, in order to be able to take part in the important cake that this represents for the telephony sector. In this way, Apple has begun to manufacture some of its devices in this country, devices destined for that country.
However, and according to The Economic Times, Apple has begun to distribute the different iPhone models that are manufactured in India throughout Europe, this allows Apple to obtain greater benefits for each terminal, since The cost of labor is much cheaper than in China.
For now, according to this newspaper, exported iPhone does not exceed 100,000 units per month, a very small number if we consider that Apple sells millions of iPhone every month. This news confirms, once again, that Apple is trying to diversify its supply chain beyond China while the trade war between the United States and China continues.
At the moment, Apple is only manufacturing the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 in India, a device aimed at the local public, because due to its low price, they are the most affordable models that Apple can currently offer in the country, along with the iPhone SE. However, Apple's plans are to start producing the current iPhone models, along with the ones it will present within a couple of months.
But Apple is not the only big company that has moved part of its production to India, a country that is putting many facilities for foreign companies to invest in factories and thus become the new China, at least during the next few years, a movement that will sooner or later end up affecting China.
