The Taiwanese manufacturer Wistron has launched recruitment processes for local iPhone 12 device manufacturing in India. A Business Standard report notes that the Made in India iPhone 12 will be launched in mid of next year. In order to step up local iPhone development activities, Wistron aims to spend over 2,900 crores in India.

In Kolar, about 70 km from Bengaluru, New Indian Express has noted for iPhone development at the Narasapura plant. When Wistron announced production plans in 2017, it was allocated around 43 acres of land by the Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB). The report notes that 10 000 jobs are to be created by the manufacturing company at Kolar. Wistron employed 2,000 local residents already.

The product which is assembled in the production unit is uncertain. Details of previous reports have however suggested that Wistron ‘s manufacturers will assemble print circuit boards ( PCBs) for iPhones at its new plant in South India.

PCB is a bed that is fundamental to key parts of an electronic system such as processors, memory, and Wireless PCB chipsets. When components have been assembled or filled, PCBs are about half the smartphone’s cost, Reuters said.

Local iPhone production saves 22% of import taxes and creates new jobs for the Indian people. The iPhone 12 will be Indian’s seventh iPhone to be developed in the nation and boost the ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ government initiative.

To date, Apple has made a range of iPhone models on-site, including iPhone 6S, iPhone 7, iPhone XR, and iPhone 11. The local iPhone SE (second generation) development is expected to start shortly.

The rival Foxconn of Wistron began last month producing iPhone 11 on its plant in Chennai. This was Apple’s first production in India of a top-of-the-line model. Apple is now looking at local iPhone 12 production and iPhone SE assembly (second generation) models after the beginning of its iPhone 11 production in India. In October sometime iPhone 12 is scheduled to be announced.

Apple has slowly increased its production in other countries, including Washington and Beijing, as reported by Reuters, and continues to make up most of its iPhones in China.
