The Tata Group will soon prepare a phone for Apple. According to a report published in the news agency Reuters, Tata Group is in talks with Taiwanese supplier Wistron Corp. If the negotiation is successful, the assembly unit can be installed. Let us tell you that Wistron Corp is a partner company of Apple. This company makes iPhones in Sriperumbudur near Chennai.
According to the news, Wistron Corp has product development supply chain and assembly expertise. Tata Group wants to take advantage of this expertise. If this successful deal, Tata will become the first company to make an iPhone. By the way, not much information about this deal has been received. The Tata group is expected to buy a stake in Wistron’s manufacturing business and take advantage of the company’s technology manufacturing prowess.
Assembling has been going on since 2017
Apple phones have been assembled in India since the year 2017. First, Wistron and Foxconn installed an assembling unit for Apple phones in India. The manufacturing of iPhone 11, iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 also occurs here. Within the next two months, the iPhone 14 will also be made.
Tata Group is the name that makes everything from needles to aeroplanes and from salt to steel. Software maker Tata Consultancy Services is also not interested in any acquaintance. Tata’s step towards iPhone production can be a milestone in such a situation. According to reports, Tata Group also wants to enter technology manufacturing.
Apple has also been trying to spread iPhone production to countries outside China for a long time. Even though the iPhone has been made in India since 2017, the production of the new model here lags a quarter or two behind the China launch. The partnership of Tata Group and Wistron Corp will make the Indian company a partner in iPhone production.
