Apple begins iPhone 11 manufacturing in India
With major changes gripping the world due to coronavirus pandemic, and manufacturing on the verge of getting diversified, India has already started reaping its benefit. In addition, India’s changing policies and government’s shift towards being self-reliant is further driving growth prospects of manufacturing in the region.
Recently, in a major win for the govt’s Aatamnirbhar India initiative, Apple has started manufacturing of one of its flagship devices, the iPhone 11, at Chennai’s Foxconn plant. This is the first time Apple has manufactured a top-of-the-line model in India.
Prior to this, the Cupertino-based tech giant had started assembling the iPhone XR in India in 2019. In 2017, Apple had started the domestic manufacturing of the Apple iPhone SE 2016 in the Bangalore plant. Apple also has plans to make the iPhone SE 2020 in India in its Wistron plant near Bangalore.
