Apple began producing iPhones in India in 2017. The company began with the first Apple iPhone SE, but has since expanded to include the Apple iPhone 11 and Apple iPhone 12. According to a recent Mint article, Apple has recently revealed that it will manufacture its next Apple iPhone 13 in the country as well.

According to the source, Apple began a trial production run for the Apple iPhone 13 in India last year through its manufacturing partner Foxconn. Following a successful trial, Apple has officially revealed that the Apple iPhone 13 is being manufactured in the nation. The decision will help Apple reduce import expenses, although it is unclear whether the Cupertino company will pass on the savings to Indian customers.

“We are thrilled to begin manufacturing Apple iPhone 13 — with its striking design, superior camera systems for amazing images and videos, and the incredible performance of the A15 Bionic chip — right here in India for our local customers,” Apple said in a statement.

Apple currently uses Foxconn and Wistron to manufacture its devices in India. According to sources familiar with Apple’s decision, the Apple iPhone 13 will be made at Foxconn’s Chennai plant. At this time, it is unclear whether Apple wants to manufacture all four Apple iPhone 13 variants in India.

Apple is currently planning to open retail outlets in India. Late last year, the business reportedly began hiring for its forthcoming retail shops in Mumbai and Delhi. Although Apple has not stated when the stores will open, sources indicate that the first store will open in Mumbai’s Bandra-Kurla Complex in August, followed by a second store in New Delhi. For those who are unaware, Apple only started an online store in India two years ago, and it now sells its items offline through authorized retailers.
