The new report claims that the low iPhone casing yield in India is a big hit on Apple’s plans to outsource a larger chunk of iPhone manufacturing in India. The former Apple employees cited in the report believe that the casing yield situation will improve, but the process will likely take a significant amount of time and effort.

Based on a recent report, Apple is planning to move up to 25% of all iPhone production in India by 2025 and up to 50% by 2027.
