Apple to ‘Make in India’ iPhone 12 devices

Apple has confirmed that its flagship and environment-friendly iPhone 12 smartphone will soon be produced in India for the local customers

In a big boost to India’s self-reliance ― ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ as Prime Minister Narendra Modi calls it ― Apple, the Cupertino-headquartered company, is going to start production of its latest iPhone 12 in India.

Apple has confirmed that its flagship and environment-friendly iPhone 12 smartphone will soon be produced in India for the local customers. “We are proud to be starting production of iPhone 12 in India for our local customers,” Apple said in a statement.

Apple started iPhones in India in 2017 with iPhone SE. Today, Apple manufactures some of its most advanced iPhones in India including XR, iPhone 11, and now iPhone 12.

Apple unveiled its much-awaited iPhone 12 series at a grand virtual event on October 13, 2020. The iPhone 12 series consists of the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max.

Apple currently manufactures the iPhone SE, iPhone XR, and the iPhone 11 in India. Last month, there were also reports of Apple starting to manufacture the iPad in India.

The government of India has reportedly approved a proposal to offer a $ 1.02 billion incentive to manufacturers in order to push for local and exports of IT products.

The production-linked incentive scheme of the government provides manufacturers cashbacks between 1% and 4% of the additional sales of locally made goods over the course of four years, with 2019-2020 as the base year.

The production of the iPhone 12 and the iPad in India could mean a price drop for Indian customers, similar to the iPhone SE and the iPhone XR. However, there is no confirmation as to when a “made-in-India” iPhone 12 will make its way to the stores.

The iPhone 12 series in was launched in India in October 2020. It is expected that Apple is seeking to benefit from the government of India’s production-linked incentive (PLI) scheme that was announced last year, in order to encourage more international countries to set up shop in the country. Apart from Foxconn, Wistron and Pegatron are also reported to act as production partners for iPhone 12 manufacturing. A report in Business Standard said that Wistron was supposed to manufacture the iPhone 12 Mini at its facility near Bengaluru, however, a final decision has not been made on the same yet. The Pegatron unit, on the other hand, is said to be ready most likely during the middle of 2021.

Notably, the iPhone 12 mini is the smallest and the most affordable model in the new series, the iPhone 12 is the successor to the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are designed by the Cupertino-based firm to succeed the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, respectively. All these smartphones come with 5G support and are powered by A14 Bionic chip developed by Apple. All these devices run on iOS 14 out-of-the-box.
