Apple Began Manufacturing AirPods in India
Earlier, Apple began the mass production of its flagship iPhones in India. The main goal of this move is to reduce production costs. It will also reduce the dependence on other brands for its parts. It has been facing problems in shipping its products due to US trade and lockdown limits. Meanwhile, other tech companies are seeking approval from the government of India.
For example, Huawei, Realme, and a few other Chinese brands are preparing to set up their factories. Yet, 14 Chinese smartphone brands have been able to get the initial approval.
