In a statement Apple Inc said, it has started making the iPhone 13 in India.
The development sees the US tech giant reducing its reliance on its Chinese supply chain.
According to a source, the iPhone 13 is being produced at a local plant at its Taiwanese contract manufacturer Foxconn located in the town of Sriperumbudur in the Southern state of Tamil Nadu.
Apple has been shifting some areas of iPhone production from China to other markets including India, where it is also planning on assembling iPad tablets.
India is increasingly become a destination, among other countries such as Vietnam, as contract manufacturers diversify production away from China.
Apple’s iPhone 13 is the fourth model to be produced locally after Cupertino launched manufacturing operations in India in 2017, with the iPhone SE.
