IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad Poses With ‘Assembled In India’ iPhone

Apple is looking at making India one of its major manufacturing hubs. IT & Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Tuesday tweeted a photograph of himself with an iPhone XR that reads “Designed by Apple in California and Assembled in India”.

The company has already been making iPhone 7 and 6s in Bengaluru. Recently, it also started assembling the iPhone X and iPhone XR in Foxconn’s Chennai plant.

These iPhones come with an ‘Assembled in India’ branding on the box.

Apple CEO Tim Cook maintains that India is an important market for the brand despite a fall in sales. The company is looking to set up its own retail stores in India after the change in FDA rules.
