Apple already produces the iPhone XR, the iPhone SE, among other products in India, with clear plans for suppliers to expand production capabilities in the country. Now, a new report by BusinessStanard suggests that Apple will produce the iPhone 12 in India starting in the middle of next year, per the report:
Stepping up its thrust on manufacturing in India, American tech giant Apple is planning to roll out locally made models of its upcoming iPhone 12 by the middle of next year, sources close to the development have said. This will be the seventh iPhone model to be made in the country, giving a boost to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Atmanirbhar vision.
According to the report the phones will be made at Apple suppliers Wistron factory in the Indian city of Bengaluru, with the aims of creating more than 10,000 jobs. The report was also backed by ex-Indian politician Dinesh Gundu on Twitter who touted the plans as “China’s loss to be India’s gain.”
