The company said it is planning to quadruple its workforce at its iPhone factory in India over the next two years after Foxconn's largest factory in China's Zhengzhou slumped the iPhone 14 series manufacturing.
Apple and Foxconn are worried about their dependency on China for global supply chains.
The manufacturing slump was caused by China's zero-COVID policy resulting in the lockdown of more than one million people in the Zhengzhou district. Out of the one million, more than 200,000 were workers at the Foxconn plant.
Foxconn will boost its workforce in India by 53,000 to a total of 70,000 over the next two years., although the total workforce will still be lower than Foxconn's Zhengzhou plant.
In its earnings call, the company said it would adjust its production capacity and output to reduce any further disruptions on supplies for the holiday season.
