Beijing time, September 1 news, Tianfeng International Securities well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo today tweeted that iPhone 14 mass production progress in India this year is still about 6 weeks behind China. Earlier this year in August, Guo Ming-Chi had predicted that Foxconn’s Indian iPhone factory would ship the new 6.1-inch iPhone 14 for the first time almost simultaneously with the Chinese factory, which was generally a quarter or more behind in the past.
Made in-India version of the iPhone 14 still lags behind China
Ming-Chi Kuo Says India iPhone 14 Mass Production Schedules Are 6 Weeks Behind
But at the end of last month, people familiar with the matter said Apple plans to start producing the latest flagship in India two months after the first iPhone 14 made in China hit the market. While India has closed the gap with China in iPhone production, it’s not quite catching up as some had expected. Constrained by secrecy and other factors, Apple and Foxconn believe it’s unrealistic to produce the iPhone 14 in both India and China this year.
Kuo also said that while India still lags behind China in iPhone 14 production, the gap has narrowed significantly, so it’s reasonable to expect that India will be able to produce the new iPhone 15 at the same time as China next year. (Written by/Xiao Yu)
