The iPhone 14 will be mainly produced in India, and no longer in China

Faced with American sanctions against China and successive confinements in this country, Apple has decided to relocate the production of its latest iPhone to India.

Apple has started producing its iPhone 14, the company’s latest smartphone model, in India. Previously, this production took place mainly in China.

In recent times, the American brand had been working with its suppliers to increase the production of the factory in Chennai, southern India. The main maker of iPhones, Taiwanese technology group Foxconn, investigated how parts could be shipped from China. The assembly of the phones then takes place in India.

Reduce China’s economic power

The US sanctions against China, intended to reduce the economic power of the country, pushed Apple to seek alternatives. The strict confinements due to the coronavirus pandemic and which disrupted the Chinese economy also forced the Apple brand to move its production capacity elsewhere.

Relations between China and the United States have been strained for many years. In 2021, the US Senate had even passed huge investments to reduce China’s economic power, especially in the field of technology. President Joe Biden has also expanded the list of Chinese companies in which it is no longer allowed to invest.
