The production of the latest lineup of iPhones has officially begun, and Apple supplier Foxconn is leading the charge in India to push the volume of Apple products coming from the country.
According to Bloomberg's report, a Foxconn plant in southern India is making preparations to deliver new Apple devices a few weeks after they start shipping from China to narrow the gap between operations in both countries.
Before the production for the iPhone 14 began, only a limited number of iPhones were assembled in India, pushing back the output from China by more than half a year.
Later on, this delay was minimized when Apple ramped up production of its iPhones in India, producing about 7% of its total output last year.
The tech giant is also slated to start mass production of its wireless AirPods in a Foxconn factory located in the same Indian region starting in December.
Apple to Unveil iPhone 15 in September
Apple is expected to unveil its latest smartphone offering next month, and various new features have been speculated leading up to the event.
According to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, the iPhone notch located at the top center part of the screen will be replaced with a dynamic island - a feature first introduced with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The border size surrounding the display has seemingly also reduced from 2.2 millimeters to 1.5 millimeters, the tech journalist shared.
Other changes include a shift to type-C charging ports, titanium instead of stainless steel for Pro models, and a suspected price hike of $200.
