Apple will reportedly not be manufacturing its flagship model, the iPhone 14 Pro Max, from the recently launched iPhone 14 lineup in the country.
There have been several reports that the iPhone 14 Pro Max is being manufactured in India. However, according to close sources, the high-end model will not be produced in the country, reports GizmoChina.
According to reports, the tech giant is reportedly reducing its reliance on China for product manufacturing.
“The new iPhone 14 series introduces revolutionary new technologies and important security features. We are excited to manufacture iPhone 14 in India,” the company said last month.
Foxconn is assembling the new iPhone 14 at its Sriperumbudur plant near Chennai.
At this rate, industry analysts are predicting that Apple could be manufacturing the iPhone 15 in India as well as China next year.
The tech giant started manufacturing iPhones in India in 2017 with the iPhone SE.
Apple manufactures some of its most advanced iPhones in the country, including the iPhone 11, iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, at the Foxconn factory, while the iPhone SE and iPhone 12 are assembled at the Wistron factory in the country.
