Apple already manufactured a series of iPhones in India including the iPhone 13, iPhone 12 and iPhone SE in India. In recent times, iPhone 14 Pro model production has been impacted massively due to ongoing tension at the company’s Foxconn plant situated in Zhengzhou, China. As per reports, over 20,000 employees including the new hires have left the manufacturer a day after violent protests broke out at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou plant in China. 

Foxconn, in an attempt to quell protests, had offered to pay newly hired workers 10,000 yuan ($1400) to quit the facility. The company also promised to pay 8000 yuan if they agreed to quit Foxconn and another 2000 yuan once they board the bus to leave the facility.
