Apple plans to produce iPhone 14 in India

India and other countries such as Mexico and Vietnam are becoming increasingly important options for manufacturers of U.S.-branded products as they try to diversify their production beyond China.

Last week, Japan’s Nikkei newspaper reported that Apple’s suppliers are conducting discussions about producing Apple Watch and MacBook for the first time in Vietnam.

Apple is working with suppliers to boost production in India and shorten the production hiatus of new iPhone lines compared to previous launches.
