Smartphone maker Apple has started manufacturing its flagship smartphone iPhone 11 in India. Union Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted and informed about this and called it big in the direction of India’s Make in India campaign. Explain that the Central Government had promised to make India a mobile manufacturing hub. The iPhone 11 smartphone will be manufactured at the Foxconn plant in Chennai. Foxconn company is the leading supplier of iPhones, which announced an investment of around $ 1 billion in India this month. Pegatron, the second-largest iPhone suppliers company after Foxconn, has also claimed investment in India.
Let us know that recently Apple launched the iPhone XR assembling line in India. Only 9 months after this, the company has started the manufacturing line of iPhone 11 in India. Companies like Foxconn, Wistron, and Pegatron work as suppliers of Apple company in India. These companies supply the iPhone model. A lot of investment has been made from these companies towards manufacturing phones in India.
It is believed that iPhone manufacturing in India will reduce the cost of the phone. Also, the company will be able to save 22 percent of the tax paid to the government as import duty. Due to this, the possibility of a decrease in the price of the iPhone 11 is being expected in the coming days. India is a big smartphone market. In such a situation, Apple will have a double benefit from manufacturing its smartphones in India. Apple started its first domestic manufacturing in May 2017 and manufactured the iPhone SE at that time. The entire process took place in Bangalore, and at that time the iPhone SE’s supplier company was Wistron. After this, in October last year, Apple started the local manufacturing of iPhone XR. Also, there is a possibility that the company may soon start working on the Made in India smartphone.
