HomeCURRENT AFFAIRSBUSINESSApple Chooses India Over China

iPhone maker Apple is planning to join India after getting upset with China. Apple has told several of its contract manufacturers that it wants to increase their production in India and Southeast Asia. Apple has been troubled by China’s stringent Covid restrictions and now wants to increase its production outside China. India is Apple’s first choice outside China. Apple has criticized many other factors including China’s Anti-Covid Policy.

According to the Wall Street Journal, sources have described India and Vietnam as the biggest alternatives to China. They said these two countries currently account for only a small part of Apple’s global production, but the company is now looking at them as an alternative to China.

According to an estimate, independent contractors in China make more than 90 percent of Apple’s products, including the iPhone, iPad and MacBook.

According to analysts, Apple’s dependence on China is a potential threat due to Beijing’s repressive communist regime and its conflicts with the US. However, when contacted by the Wall Street Journal, an Apple spokesperson declined to comment. According to people associated with Apple’s manufacturing plan, the company sees India as the next China due to the large population and low cost.

China, on the other hand, has a large number of qualified workers, which is more than the population of many Asian countries. Apple has worked closely with local governments in China to ensure that its contractors have enough land, people and supplies to manufacture iPhones and other devices at the plants.

In April, Apple CEO Tim Cook said, “Our supply chain is truly global and so products are made everywhere. We also continue to optimize.”

Apple was trying to distance itself from China before the worldwide spread of COVID-19 in early 2020, but the pandemic stalled its ambitions. According to people familiar with the matter, Apple is again pressuring its contractors and instructing them to look for new manufacturing capacity.
