According to new information, Apple has begun exporting iPhones from its factories in India to certain markets in Europe. Apple mainly produces old iPhones in India such as iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 through Wistron manufacturing partners.
According to Neil Shah of Counterpoint Research, Apple is exporting about 100,000 units of iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 each month. The company seems to have started exporting older generation iPhones from India to the European market a few months ago. Export volume is about 60-70% of the total production capacity of factories. This is the first time Apple has used one of its manufacturing facilities in India as an export hub. So far, "Apples App" only uses its factories in India to meet the needs of users in this country.
It is known that the Indian Government increasingly encourages companies to produce their products in this country as part of the "Make in India" program. Apple's manufacturing partner, Wistron, began manufacturing iPhone 6s / iPhone SE in India in 2016 and started producing iPhone 7 from the beginning of this year.
India has heavily taxed smartphones that are not produced in this country. And this is why iPhones are exorbitant in India while Samsung and other OEMs can price their smartphones competitively.
Foxconn, Apple's major manufacturing partner, is also negotiating to set up an iPhone factory in India to produce high-end iPhones like iPhone X / XS. The move not only helped Apple lower iPhone prices in the country but also helped the company avoid being affected in the trade war between China and the US.
