'Made in India' iPhone 11 goes into production in Chennai

Apple uses local assembly to diversify supply chain away from China

MUMBAI -- Apple's Taiwanese contract manufacturer Foxconn has begun assembling the iPhone 11 series at its Chennai plant in southern India, part of a bid by the U.S. tech giant to diversify production beyond China.

The iPhone 11 models assembled in India have just hit retail stores in the South Asian country starting around 63,800 rupees ($850). Analysts expect Apple will eventually lower prices closer to the level at which most Indians buy.
