Globalisation - Apple shifts iPhone production from China to India

Graham Watson

27th September 2022

Something for Economics and Business students alike: Apple is planning to make its new iPhone 14 handsets in India, as it looks to diversify away from China.

Lots to think about here - location, multiplier effects, diversification, the implications for Apple's supply chain an organisational structure.

But you might also think about whether political pressure has also played a role as the US government looks to discourage its firms in the high tech sector from engaging with China.
