Apple said on Monday it will manufacture its latest iPhone 14 in India, as the tech giant moves some of its production away from China.
On Thursday, Apple reported that revenue fell 5 percent to $117.15 billion during the three months that ended in December, the company's first quarterly sales decline since before the pandemic. Profits decreased 13 percent to $30 billion.
The iPhone maker's top supplier Foxconn plans to boost production in India, with a new facility in Bengaluru. But the move westward could be beset by red tape and quality control issues.
Martin Yang of Oppenheimer says Apple is probably not willing to "lower its price relative to other markets … just for the sake of gaining market share in the near term," as there is a good number customers who will be willing to pay a premium price for its products.
In a big gamble for the world’s most valuable company, Apple is widely expected to launch its first major new product in almost a decade at its annual developers' conference next week: a virtual reality headset.
