The iPhone 14 series is expected to be released by Apple in September of this year, and sources indicate that it will be produced in China and India concurrently.

Following recent geopolitical concerns, the Cupertino-based corporation will produce the Apple iPhone 14 series, which includes the iPhone 14, iPhone Max, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, in India, according to market analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Kuo said in his tweets that Foxconn’s iPhone manufacturing facility in India would begin shipping iPhone 14 models with Chinese manufacturers.

Although Apple has been producing iPhones in India for a few years, rumours claim that the country’s output is at least 25% lower than that of China.

The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models, which are purportedly made by Foxconn, will apparently be produced there. According to reports, the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max would also have 6.7-inch displays.

According to Kuo, the production facilities in India would initially fall short of China in terms of iPhone shipments. However, given the current geopolitical developments, the tech giant’s decision to construct a production facility outside of China may be a “important milestone.” As the potential next important market to drive the company’s growth, Apple is reportedly also focusing on the Indian market.

Apple is expected to release the iPhone 14 for $799, the same pricing as the iPhone 13. (around Rs 64,000).
