Apple is all set to launch the iPhone 15 sequence, Apple Watch Series 9, and the Apple Watch Ultra 2 at its ‘Wonderlust’ occasion tomorrow on September 12. And this yr, the iPhone 15 sequence is being touted as consultant of an enormous change by way of adopting USB-C as the usual port—changing the decade-old Lightning connector.
However, aside from the change to USB-C and the myriad of recent upgrades that the brand new telephones will convey to the desk—one other main shift—particularly for India, can be the supply of ‘Made in India’ iPhone 15 items proper from the launch—or at the very least—close to the launch within the Indian market.
The Economic Times reported that Apple might be making ready to make the ‘Made in India’ iPhone 15 obtainable in India virtually concurrently with its international launch. And that Apple is utilizing the Foxconn facility in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, to convey the iPhone 15 to the Indian market round mid-September—narrowing the hole in comparison with the worldwide launch to just some days, if not concurrently.
Last yr, with the iPhone 14, Apple took almost 10 days after the worldwide launch to begin making the vanilla iPhone 14 at Foxconn’s Tamil Nadu plant. But this yr, the iPhone maker is ready upfront and is about to make the India-made iPhone 15 items obtainable to Indian clients earlier than they’re exported to different areas.
Apple, final yr, confirmed that it was making the iPhone 14 in India in a press release to PTI. “We’re excited to be manufacturing iPhone 14 in India. The new iPhone 14 lineup introduces groundbreaking new technologies and important safety capabilities,” Apple mentioned in September 2022.
Estimates counsel that it in all probability took Apple till the tip of September to supply the India-made iPhone 14 to Indian clients. But this time, issues would possibly change, as reported. So, if the Chennai-made telephones are prepared on the market in India when the worldwide launch occurs, it could present that Apple is giving extra significance to its Indian manufacturing and that India is turning into a much bigger precedence for the American tech firm.
Notably, this doesn’t imply that Apple launched the iPhone 14 fashions late in India. In truth, the fashions have been obtainable in India proper according to the worldwide launch on September 16—the identical time as within the US. It’s simply that these weren’t ‘Indian’ items.
