At present, many Apple products are produced in China. In order to make the supply chain more flexible, it is pointed out that Apple has always hoped to diversify production locations, but the outbreak disrupted the deployment, and now the plan is said to be back on track.

Reuters recently quoted an analyst report from JP Morgan saying that Apple intends to transfer 25% of global iPhone production capacity to India in 2025.

Apple has been producing iPhones in India since 2017. It originally supplied the first-generation iPhone SE for the local market, and then added new models including the iPhone 13. It also began exporting iPhones made in India.

Currently, iPhones produced in India account for the entire 5%. Last year, the iPhone 13 was only produced in India about half a year after it was launched. It is reported that Foxconn budgeted to start assembling the iPhone 14 in India in a few weeks, which was much earlier than usual.

The report also mentioned that Apple also plans to move 25% of the production capacity of all products, including iPads, Apple Watches, AirPods and Macs, from China to other countries in 2025. Apple products currently produced outside China account for about 5% of the total.

JP Morgan analysts pointed out that Taiwan's Hon Hai and Pegatron will play an important role in relocating to India, and Apple is also expected to issue certification to Indian parts suppliers in the medium to long term.

Bloomberg pointed out that the Tata Group, a local Indian company, had negotiated with Wistron, an Apple foundry, and hoped to set up a joint venture iPhone production line to take a share of the change.
