Interesting Article on Iphone Manufacturing Ecosystem.

Where Is the iPhone Made?
Anyone who has bought an iPhone or another Apple product has seen the note on the company’s packaging that its products are designed in California, but that doesn't mean they're manufactured there. Answering the question of where the iPhone is made isn't simple.

Assembled vs. Manufactured
When trying to understand where Apple manufactures its devices, there are two key concepts that sound similar but are different: assembling and manufacturing.

Manufacturing is the process of making the components that go into the iPhone. While Apple designs and sells the iPhone, it doesn't manufacture its components. Instead, Apple uses manufacturers from around the world to deliver individual parts. The manufacturers specialize in particular items—camera specialists manufacture the lens and camera assembly, screen specialists build the display, and so on.

Assembling, on the other hand, is the process of taking all the individual components built by specialist manufacturers and combining them into a finished, working iPhone.

The iPhone's Component Manufacturers
Because there are hundreds of individual components in every iPhone, it's not possible to list every manufacturer whose products are found on the phone. It's also difficult to discern exactly where those components are made because sometimes one company builds the same component at multiple factories.

Some of the suppliers of key or interesting parts for the iPhone 5S, 6, and 6S and where they operate, included:

  • Accelerometer: Bosch Sensortech, based in Germany with locations in the U.S., China, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan
  • Audio chips: Cirrus Logic, based in the U.S. with locations in the U.K., China, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, and Singapore
  • Battery: Samsung, based in South Korea with locations in 80 countries
  • Battery: Sunwoda Electronic, based in China
  • Camera: Qualcomm, based in the U.S. with locations in Australia, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, and more than a dozen locations through Europe and Latin America
  • Camera: Sony, based in Japan with locations in dozens of countries
  • Chips for 3G/4G/LTE networking: Qualcomm
  • Compass: AKM Semiconductor, based in Japan with locations in the U.S., France, England, China, South Korea, and Taiwan
  • Glass screen: Corning, based in the U.S., with locations in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Poland, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, The Netherlands, Turkey, the U.K., and the United Arab Emirates.
  • Gyroscope: STMicroelectronics. Based in Switzerland, with locations in 35 countries
  • Flash memory: Toshiba, based in Japan with locations in over 50 countries
  • Flash memory: Samsung
  • LCD screen: Sharp, based in Japan with locations in 13 countries
  • LCD screen: LG, based in South Korea with locations in Poland and China
  • A-series processor: Samsung
  • A-series processor: TSMC, based in Taiwan with locations in China, Singapore, and the U.S.
  • Touch ID: TSMC
  • Touch ID: Xintec. Based in Taiwan.
  • Touch-screen controller: Broadcom, based in the U.S. with locations in Israel, Greece, the U.K., the Netherlands, Belgium, France, India, China, Taiwan, Singapore, and South Korea
  • Wi-Fi chip: Murata, based in the U.S. with locations in Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Canada, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, India, Vietnam, The Netherlands, Spain, the U.K., Germany, Hungary, France, Italy, and Finland
The iPhone's Assemblers
The components manufactured by those companies all around the world are ultimately sent to just two companies to assemble into iPods, iPhones, and iPads. Those companies are Foxconn and Pegatron, both of which are based in Taiwan.

Technically, Foxconn is the company’s trade name; the firm’s official name is Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Ltd. Foxconn is Apple's longest-running partner in building these devices. It currently assembles the majority of Apple's iPhones in its Shenzen, China, location, although Foxconn maintains factories in countries across the world, including Thailand, Malaysia, the Czech Republic, South Korea, Singapore, and the Philippines.

Pegatron is a relatively recent addition to the iPhone assembly process. It is estimated that it built about 30 percent of the iPhone 6 orders in its Chinese plants.

Conclusion
As you can see, the answer to the question of where the iPhone is made isn't simple. It can boil down to China since that's where all the components are assembled, and the final, working devices come from, but it's a complex, nuanced worldwide effort to manufacture all the parts that go into making an iPhone.

Mumbai-based firm sets up India’s first manufacturing unit for Li-ion battery components

The firm added that it plans to invest Rs 500 crore over the next five years in the facility that would produce 5,000 tonnes of anode material annually.

New Delhi: Mumbai-based Epsilon Carbon, a coal tar derivatives company, on Monday said it has commissioned the country’s first manufacturing facility in Karnataka to produce graphite anode materials for lithium-ion batteries (LiB).

The firm added that it plans to invest Rs 500 crore over the next five years in the facility that would produce 5,000 tonnes of anode material annually. It plans to triple this capacity to 15,000 tonnes in 2021 and to 50,000 tonnes per annum by 2025.

According to the company press release, graphite anodes comprise 25 per cent volume in LiB cells and are the highest single material component in a cell’s chemistry. Till now, China supplies more than 80 per cent of the global demand for graphite anodes.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the forefront the importance of a self-reliant nation. As India pushes an aggressive electric vehicle policy... our manufacturing leadership in graphite anodes will make India self-sufficient for a key raw material for LiB cells,” said Vikram Handa, managing director of Epsilon Carbon.

The firm said that the battery materials business would be housed under a new subsidiary, Epsilon Advanced Materials, which will become the preferred supplier of synthetic graphite material to cell manufacturers and energy storage device companies across the globe.

It added that the company has also set-up a target-oriented research and development laboratory to improve the quality of the material further.

Epsilon Carbon operates India’s first integrated carbon complex with a backward integration from raw coal tar to the finished product.

No greater satisfaction than winning a war with Made in India weapons: CDS on ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’
Published August 27, 2020 | By admin SOURCE: TIMES NOW Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat on Thursday referred to India’s collective response to COVID-19 pandemic and said the country was capable of overcoming any challenges and threats to its national security. Speaking at a webinar on ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ as part of the defence industry outreach, Gen Rawat also noted that the country was capable of manufacturing high-end indigenous weapon systems. “India today is facing numerous challenges and threats. Our collective response to COVID-19 has firmly established our ability to overcome any such unforeseeable eventuality. We’ve capability, capacity and will to produce high-end indigenous weapon systems. With government’s push in the right direction and vision of ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ being promulgated, this is the time to see this opportunity to achieve self-efficiency and becoming net exporter of defence equipment,” the CDS told the webinar. Underlining the armed forces’ commitment to indigenisation of weapons and equipment, the CDS noted that the Indian soldier would be happy to win a war with technologies developed in the country. “The armed forces are committed to supporting the ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’. Nothing will give us greater satisfaction than fighting and coming out victorious in wars with indigenous developed technologies and equipment,” Gen Rawat stated. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also spoke during the defence industry outreach webinar and said the Narendra Modi government is aiming to make India self-reliant in defence manufacturing. The minister noted the recent ‘bold reforms’ announced as part of the initiative. “We want to become self-reliant to contribute to the world in a better way. In this direction, some bold policy reforms have been taken like the ban on import of 101 defence items. I am confident that through our collaborative and cooperative efforts, we will not only achieve ‘Make in India’ but also ‘Make for World’,” Singh said. The remarks came even as it was learned that the Ministry of Defence is working to bringing out by the end of this year another list of military platforms and weapons whose imports would be barred in order to encourage their domestic production. The ministry is already in talks with key stakeholders like the defence public sector undertakings, private industries, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the three services on framing the second negative arms import list. Earlier this month, the ministry had announced a ban on import of 101 weapons and military platforms like transport aircraft, light combat helicopters, conventional submarines, cruise missiles and sonar systems by 2024 as part of the ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ initiative

The biggest threat to make in india in commercial and defence market is certain mental bias in indian population that made in india products are of low quality and inferior.
on this point, since this is a perception game, where the hell are the vendors to DPSU’s? why aren’t they interested in protecting their own ecosystem?

need to check the annual reports but I am sure most of the money that DPSU gets goes to its vendors. If not for DPSU’s sake atleast for the sake of Indian defence manufacturing, why don’t they speak up , spend some monies to change perceptions about domestic defence industries.

Am I making sense?

Maybe because end product is not thier own. And probably small supplier's don't have the financial backing to support this type of initiative.

But big names like baba kalyani godrej group L&T tata defence Reliance defence industry Aditya birla group always promote their indigenously developed defence product's in the market.

No wonder Indian defence industry always looks clueless, if they want their industry to grow they have to spend a little on conferences, Defence engineering literature ,advertising etc.

Each of them need not spend big monies, but they can definitely pool money thru trade federations and do something.

If you notice American & European defence industry, there are always some activity of some kind. As a group they take their industry forward, not just leaving it in the hands of big boys like LM & BAE etc.

If our chaps don’t evolve in business practices as a group, they will face the same fate of Nokia in its previous avatar.
