According to Reuters, Apple is now producing the iPhone 13 in India at the Foxconn factory in the country. This is marking an increased move away from Apple’s reliance on China and will also benefit from the various government schemes in place in India.

Apple started making iPhones in India back in 2017 with the first generation iPhone SE and making phones there will help Apple cut down on costs and the Indian government encourages companies to make products there as it can help offer employment and makes India more of a production hub.

In 2020, Apple opened the online store to customers in the country, marking the first time customers could purchase an Apple product direct, as apposed to using a third party reseller. However, Apple also said that by the end of 2021 the first physical Apple Store would be opened – since then, the company has said nothing and there is still no Apple Store in India.
