iPhone 15 series to go on sale in India along with global debut: Report
Apple is set to launch the iPhone 15 from its Chennai unit in India, aiming for a close-to-global release in mid-September, reducing the time lag compared to previous models. The iPhone 15 lineup is expected to consist of four models - iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Apple is reportedly set to launch the iPhone 15 from its Chennai unit in India, aiming for a close-to-global release in mid-September, reducing the time lag compared to previous models. According to several media sources, production started in China in June, and components started arriving at Indian plants at the same time. The California-based company is preparing for a substantial advancement with the iPhone 15, and this time around, the timing of its "made-in-India" iPhone 15 is the notable modification.
According to various media reports, Apple is hoping to set a new record in India by releasing its newest model. The iPhone 15, which will be produced at Foxconn's factory in Chennai, is expected to be unveiled by the technology corporation in mid-September.
Reports further stated that this strategy attempts to reduce the time gap between the Indian debut and the global release and may potentially lead to a simultaneous debut in India.
Last year, Apple's Foxconn facility in Chennai commenced production of the iPhone 14 just ten days after its worldwide launch, with Indian-made iPhones reaching the market approximately a month later.
The report further notes that due to the fact that the required preparations for the iPhone 15's mass production are already underway, the time gap, if any, is anticipated to be reduced to only a few days this year. According to reports, Foxconn's Zhengzhou facility in China started producing the iPhone 15 for testing in June, and around the same time, parts started arriving at Foxconn's Indian facilities.
Additionally, Apple plans to begin shipping the iPhone 15 series handsets built in India in December 2023. These products are initially designed to satisfy local Indian market demand, which is predicted to increase dramatically over the holiday season.
