Bengaluru, June 2 (KNN) The Karnataka government on Thursday announced that Foxconn, a key Apple supplier will begin manufacturing iPhones at Devanahalli plant near Bengaluru airport by April 2024.

MB Patil, Minister for Large and Medium Industries in Karnataka, said Taiwanese electronics giant has plans to start manufacturing iPhones at its proposed Devanahalli plant.


“The state government would hand over the required land and other infrastructure facilities for the company by July 1 to facilitate the manufacturing process. The government would ensure providing water, quality power supply, road connectivity, and other infrastructure facilities to facilitate the manufacturing process,” he said.

Last month, the world's largest contract electronics manufacturer informed that it had bought a huge tract of land in tech hub Bengaluru. 

In a statement to the London Stock Exchange, the company said it had acquired 1.2 million-square-meter land in Devanahalli, near the airport for Bengaluru.

The company has set a target of manufacturing 2 crore iPhones a year at the plant in Devanahalli.

Recently, Apple has been shifting production away from China after the country's strict COVID-related restrictions disrupted the production of new iPhones and other devices in the country.

The tech giant is also looking to avoid a hit to its business due to tensions between Beijing and Washington.  (KNN Bureau)
