The report states that Apple is investing Rs 2,900 crore in the plant that will start working by October 2021 with over 10,000 employees, out of which 2,000 will be locals.
This will be the seventh iPhone manufactured in India including the iPhone 6, 6S, 7, XR, and 11 in the list. iPhone SE is also manufactured in India.
Apple is not only helping the local manufacturing to grow or creating new jobs but also save 22% of the import taxes that will be reflected in the cost of the product.
Chief Financial Officer of Apple, Luca Maestri stated that in September 2020, they started selling the new iPhone products, so the supply of new manufacturing may be available for users a few weeks later. The expected delay is due to the impact of the pandemic on the production that was delayed for a few weeks and months.
In the latest model of iPhone, users will be introduced to new designs, host of features, different screen sizes and whatnot.
