As per a Business Standard report, the Wistron facility near Bengaluru will be the first to manufacture the current iPhone 12 lineup, while by the end of 2021 the Pegatron factory in Chennai will also join.
In related news to Apple, the company is readying its iPhones to ditch the notch on the front and as per a new report, this might finally happen in the Pro models of the iPhone launched in 2022 (not in 2021).
Apple is also expected to upgrade the front-facing camera’s autofocus capabilities in the iPhone 14 series of models. All iPhones in the lineup could adopt this punch-hole display design if product yields allow.
This will also allow the Apple users to have more viewing area resulting in an even more immersive experience. Secondly, the report further reads that Apple is planning to release a new iPhone SE model in the first half of next year. The 2022 model iPhone SE will be the first entry-priced model by the company to feature 5G
