Foxconn is manufacturing iPhone 15 in India.

The Taiwan-based electronics manufacturing company, Foxconn, is producing iPhone 15 at its plant in Tamil Nadu, India. To expedite production, Foxconn is expanding production lines at its Chennai plant.

In India, iPhones have been manufactured since 2017.

Apple began manufacturing iPhones in India with the iPhone SE in 2017. It has three electronic manufacturing services (EMS) partners – Foxconn, Wistron, and Pegatron. After iPhone SE, iPhone 11, iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone 14 were also manufactured in India. Foxconn’s plant is located near Chennai in Sriperumbudur.

Apple’s involvement is part of India’s PLI scheme.

Apple’s three contract manufacturers (Foxconn, Wistron, and Pegatron) are part of India’s Production-Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme worth ₹41,000 crore. This scheme has boosted iPhone production in India. The PLI scheme was initiated by the Indian government in 2020.
