Apple is set to introduce iPhone 15 models manufactured in India on the very day of their global launch.

This groundbreaking move comes as the tech giant further distances itself from over-reliance on China as its primary manufacturing hub, a strategy accelerated by disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Apple has steadily increased its manufacturing presence in India, with approximately 7% of iPhone production already taking place in the country.

Until now, India's role primarily involved the production of older iPhone models, primarily for local distribution, aiming to circumvent hefty import tariffs.

Recently, it was reported that India commenced production of the highly anticipated iPhone 15, closely following China's production timeline.

While exact details regarding the quantities and models remain undisclosed, unspecified sources have hinted at Apple's plans to debut Indian-made iPhone 15 units not only within India but also in select international markets.

This year's iPhone lineup promises to be a game-changer, with Apple reportedly introducing four new models: the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

Apple iPhone 15 new features:

Anticipation is running high as rumors suggest several significant upgrades.

One of the most talked-about features is the introduction of the A17 Bionic chip, expected to power the top-tier iPhone 15 Pro model.

Another exciting development is the potential incorporation of titanium frames for enhanced durability.

For photography enthusiasts, there's more good news. Rumors indicate a substantial boost in the primary camera's resolution for the non-Pro models, jumping from 12 megapixels to a whopping 48 megapixels.
