California-based based Apple begins to manufacture its iPhone SE models in Bengaluru.
Commenting on the development, Karnataka infrastructure development Minister R V Deshpande said “I am delighted to know that one of the most valuable technology companies in the world Apple has decided to manufacture its iPhone SE models in Bengaluru. I congratulate the Apple team for their decision and making the project a reality.”
The iPhone SE model is very popular and in high demand globally.
Deshpande said “It is a matter of great pride that in future these phones will be available globally with a ‘Made in India’ seal. State government has assured full support for Apple's manufacturing facility in Bangalore.”
There was stiff competition among states to get this project. The fact that Apple chose Karnataka has yet again affirmed Karnataka's investment attractiveness and business friendly environment.
“We expect that this investment from Apple will boost job creation and enrich innovation and technology ecosystem in the State,” said Deshpande.
