The move is seen in the context of growing trade tussles between Beijing and Washington, a win for New Delhi in its push for local manufacturing.

Apple iPhone assembler is preparing to make Beats headphones in India and hopes to eventually produce AirPods in the country as well, a report said.

Luxshare Precision Industry, a Chinese supplier to the iPhone maker, and its units also plan to help Apple make AirPods in India, according to the report. However, Luxshare is focusing more on its Vietnamese AirPods operations for now and could be slower than its competitors in starting meaningful production of Apple products in India, the Nikkei quoted in a report.

Apple did not immediately respond to a Reuters‘ request for comment. The tech giant has been shifting some areas of iPhone production from China to other markets, including India, where it started manufacturing iPhone 13 earlier this year, and is also planning to assemble iPad tablets. The company announced last week its plans to manufacture the latest iPhone 14 in India.

Meanwhile, Apple's latest move is part of its gradual diversification from China, the Nikkei report said. India and other countries such as Mexico and Vietnam are increasingly turning important to contract manufacturers supplying to American brands amid COVID-related lockdowns in China and simmering tensions between Washington and Beijing to India.
