Apple began shipping India-made iPhone XS and XR models to Europe in July 2019. India hopes to make $ 190 billion in smartphone production in the country by 2025. Currently, the Indian government earned $ 24 billion from smartphone production.

Apple?s production partner Wistron had invested $ 340 million in facilities that matched iPhone production in India in January 2019. Apple?s partner Foxconn is also moving to the country.

According to Bloomberg, the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been pressured to lower the country's incredibly high unemployment rates. Hopes of attracting foreign component manufacturers could help boost India?s production in Asia as part of Modi?s ?Make in India? program. In particular, the program experienced take-off problems due to the lack of road and port infrastructure, making it an unattractive prospect for investors.

These proposals have been forwarded to the Indian Minister of Finance, but no formal decision has yet been made. A decision to produce more products in India could also be mutually beneficial for Apple. This would allow them to benefit from sources outside China, thereby reducing the cost of tariffs imposed by the United States government on products made in China.
