Foxconn, an Apple supplier, receives an order for AirPods and plans a $200 million factory in India: Report

According to a report from Reuters, Apple supplier Foxconn has won an order to manufacture AirPod headphones in India, and is planning to invest $200 million in a new factory in the country. The report did not confirm when the production of AirPods will begin, but said that Foxconn is aiming to start production in October.

The new factory will be Foxconn’s first in India, and is expected to create up to 25,000 jobs for Indian workers. The Taiwanese manufacturer has been looking to expand its presence in India to take advantage of the country’s growing market for electronics and technology.

The report also said that Foxconn has been in discussion with the Indian government for months to set up a production facility in the country. It remains to be seen whether the new factory will be able to produce AirPods at a competitive price, but it is likely that the move will help Apple reduce its reliance on Chinese factories for its products.
