Apple has started production of its flagship iPhone13 at its contract manufacturer Foxconn’s facility near Chennai.
“We’re excited to start manufacturing the iPhone 13 — with its beautiful design, advanced camera systems for stunning photos and videos, and incredible performance of the A15 Bionic chip — right here in India for our local customers,” Apple said in a statement statement sent by email Peppystores.
iPhone 11, 12 and 13 are manufactured at Foxconn. The iPhone 12 and SE, SE1 models are manufactured at Apple’s other contract manufacturer, Wistron, in Bengaluru.
Last year, food poisoning broke out at the Foxconn plant near Chennai. Following the intervention of the state government and Apple, Foxconn management said it was taking corrective action.
