Made in India iPhone 13 coming from April! Prices to be affected or not, find out
iPhone 13 to get the “Made in India” tag from April suggest latest reports. It will be manufactured by Foxconn in Chennai.
A “Made in India” iPhone 13 has been long on the cards, and after the tension at Foxconn's Chennai plant late last year, it is all set to be manufactured in India. Apple already manufactures its iPhone 12, iPhone 11, and the outgoing iPhone SE in India, and now the iPhone 13 joins this list. But don't get your hopes high on its pricing though! Apple's global pricing strategy might keep the Indian prices the same. That said, there are chances we might see an official price drop, considering the trend every year.
The iPhone 13 was put into trial production earlier, and would have been already on a full manufacturing spree had the tensions not popped up at the Foxconn Sriperumbudur plant. Foxconn was under the scanner from Apple and local authorities to provide good living facilities for its employees. According to a Business Standard report now, the situation has been solved and Apple is set to begin the iPhone 13's local manufacturing soon.
iPhone 13 to be now manufactured in India
The iPhone 13 manufactured in India is said to be export ready while also being sold in India. Prices may not be affected with this new manufacturing plan, considering that Apple would want to maintain its pricing strategy in India. Hence, the iPhone 13 Mini and iPhone 13 could still have starting prices of Rs. 69,990 and Rs. 79,990.
Despite being around for over six months now, the iPhone 13 is still one of the best high end phones available in the market at the moment. The A15 Bionic still offers the fastest performance on any phone right now, while the cameras are one of the most reliable ones as well. You miss out on a high refresh rate display but there are larger gains in the battery life.
The iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max offers that high refresh rate 120Hz display and an improved set of triple cameras. Note that only the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini are the ones that will be manufactured in India. The Pro variants will continue to manufactured in global markets.
While the prices are less likely to change officially, you can save a lot of money on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini on Amazon India. Check out the deals on these models in today's story on HT Tech.
