Why is it special for Tata to have iPhone manufacturing?
Let us tell you that in India only Foxconn and Wistron manufacture iPhone. i.e. in India
iPhone is manufactured, but no local company manufactures it. This is the first time when the command of iPhone manufacturing will be in the hands of an Indian company.
However, Apple still does not assemble all models in India. The company has started manufacturing this year’s latest phone i.e. iPhone 15 in India, but the iPhone 15 Pro series is still manufactured in China.
The company keeps it exclusive in China. Currently, 7 percent of total Apple products are manufactured in India. China is still Apple’s largest supplier.
