Apple iPhone 13 is going to be the next ‘Made in India’ smartphone from the company. The company is reportedly going to manufacture the iPhone 13 which will be used for the Indian market and exported to other countries as well. The details were shared by sources in a Business Standard report this week. Apple iPhone 13 will be manufactured at the Foxconn plant in Sriperumbudur, which is near Chennai.

The report also says the iPhone 13 manufacturing will start in India from April. But just because the iPhone 13 is going to be manufactured/assembled in India does not mean the iPhone 13 prices will come down anytime soon for buyers. This is because Apple had started making the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 in India previously but the prices didn’t come down. The only time we can expect the prices of iPhone 13 to come is when some festive offer has been rolled out by Apple or e-commerce platforms like Amazon, Flipkart and others.

Apple iPhone local manufacturing started with the iPhone 6 series many years back, and even then we didn’t see any price revisions done by Apple for the iPhone models. The list of locally manufactured iPhones includes the newer iPhone 11 and the iPhone 12 as well. Apart from Foxconn, Apple has also relied on Wistron, Foxlink, Flex Limited and a few other suppliers in India for its local production setup.
