To diversify its production and reduce its dependence on China, Apple seems to have shifted its focus to the Indian market. After the iPhone 11 was started in India, the upcoming new iPhone could also be made in India.According to reports, it is speculated that Apple may start producing "made in India" iPhone 12 series models by mid-2021. Manufacturing will be carried out in Narasapura new factory in Bangalore, which is operated by Taiwan company Weichuang.
It is also reported that the company may invest about 29 billion rupees as it will hire about 10,000 employees. Although the factory is already carrying out a new project, it is expected to start production in a few months.
