iPhone 15 Likely To Be Made In India By Tata Group
The US-based tech giant Apple is planning to manufacture some models of the upcoming iPhone 15 series in India to reduce its dependence on China for production. The iPhone 15 is expected to launch in September this year.
There is a new report that suggests that Apple will partner with the Tata Group to assemble iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus in the country. According to TrendForce, the Tata Group will be the fourth company to manufacture iPhones for Apple after Foxconn, Pegatron, and Luxshare.
The Tata Group has acquired Wistron’s Indian production line, which is India’s largest conglomerate that will assemble the iPhone 15 series. This comes as Wistron is reportedly preparing to exit the Indian market, paving the way for Tata to become the new contract partner for iPhone production in the country.
The upcoming iPhone 15 is expected to have Apple’s Bionic A16 chipset, which was introduced last year in the iPhone 14 Pro models. The new strategy is to offer the latest chipset in Pro models, while standard models get a year-old chipset.
