New Delhi , December 30: Apple’s Taiwanese manufacturing partner Wistron plans to make iPhones for the Indian market in Bengaluru. Apple is setting up a facility in Peenya, the industrial hub. The plan will implement by next April, according to the sources.
Sources in the company confirmed that Apple is “very serious” about setting up assembly operations and full manufacture by the end of next year. Local manufacture will help Apple price its phones competitively as full imports attract 12.5% additional duty. Earlier the company committed to setting up a manufacturing plant in Maharashtra.
Earlier in May, Apple announced a design and development accelerator in the city to grow the iOS developer community and also to guide Indian developers to leverage Apple’s programming language Swift and build apps for Apple TV and Apple Watch.
Apple has published job openings on its portal for a few positions at its OEM’s factory in Bengaluru like operations program manager and product quality manager.
