Apple has, for the first time, started manufacturing its latest flagship product, iPhone, in India. The move will give a boost for the government’s Make in India initiative.
As per a report by ET, the production will be stepped up in two phases and Apple may also consider exporting the iPhone 11 as well. The report further highlights that the company has not cut prices as it sells iPhone 11 phones made in China in India, but local production will save Apple 22 per cent import duty.
The report further highlights that the company is considering to plan to make the iPhone SE at the Wistron plant in Bengaluru as well. With this, Apple wants to take advantage of the recently-launched PLI scheme by the government of India. The move will also help Apple to reduce its dependence on China for making its latest iPhones.
