Tech giant, Apple has started the manufacturing of the iPhone 7 in India. The new move, is under the ‘Made in India’ scheme, as the company aimed to expand its market. The smartphone is being assembled at the Wistron facility in Bengaluru. Wistron is a Taiwanese contract manufacturer and has been assembling iPhone 6s and iPhone SE models in India already.
According to report, production was started at the beginning of March itself at the same facility. Wistron received the approval for its 5000 core proposal to expand its manufacturing capabilities. According to analysts, Apple will invest the margin made from these devices and convert them into more sales and marketing.
