iPhone will be manufactured in India
Despite the recent ban on the sale of refurbished iPhone in India, in the coming years in this country will see a huge number of smartphones from Cupertino. However not the fact that at least half of them will remain in the country.
Local newspaper the Economic Times of India reports that Foxconn is close to signing an agreement on the construction in the Indian state of Maharashtra plant, which will produce iPhone. The site, which claims to manufacturing partner of Apple, has an impressive area of about 500 hectares, and the project was reportedly allocated $ 10 billion.
At the moment, the prospects for the transaction depend on the Indian government, which must give its approval to her signing. According to sources at Foxconn, if the agreement will be signed in the near future, the plant will be operational in six years.
What iPhone model will be produced at this plant, is still unknown. It’s possible that already on the iPhone 7s will show off the inscription: “Designed by Apple in California, assembled in India”.
