iPhone 12 - Made In India

As per the plan, the manufacturing company at Kolar will be hiring 10,000 employees for the job. The 'Made in India' iPhone 12 is expected to hit the market by mid-2021. To ramp up the local production and kick start the process, Wistron plans to invest over 2,900 crores in India, which will generate domestic employment in the country.

The Karnataka Industrial Policy states that 70 percent of the jobs generated should be given to locals. The company has already hired 2000 locals for the job.
