India to be a major hub for iPhone manufacturing📱
India is set to emerge as a major hub for iPhone manufacturing as US smartphone giant Apple looks to diversify production units outside China.
According to industry executives, manufacturing in India for the Cupertino-based major is set to rise sharply as the company's three contract manufacturers - Foxconn, Pegatron and Wistron - ramp up production and subsequently exports.
Apple has been gradually working towards moving a larger pie of iPhone manufacturing to India amid geopolitical tensions between China and the US.
Foxconn's plant in Zhengzhou, China is the largest manufacturing unit for iPhones in the world.
