Apple has started “manufacturing” the iPhone 11 in India, Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted on Friday. This move comes right after the Cupertino giant started the assembly line for the iPhone XR in the country nine months ago.
The local assembly of the iPhone 11 would help the company avoid a 20 percent tax that will be needed to pay for importing the handset from its global manufacturing facilities. Foxconn, Pegatron, and Wistron are the leading suppliers of iPhone models, and it has been reported that everyone would be making huge investments in the Indian market in the coming days.
As tweeted by Commerce and Industry Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted on Friday, India will be the new manufacturing destination of iPhone 11. This new step comes just a little over the period of nine months after the Cupertino giant started iPhone XR assembly line in the country.
