For manufacturing iPhones, Foxconn has reportedly proposed a $10 billion facility in Maharashtra and the company is seemingly scouting for around 1200 acres of land to set up the same. The report also reveals that Foxconn and the Central Government have agreed on Maharashtra for the location of this iPhone production facility. 

Currently, Foxconn assembles Xiaomi, OnePlus and Gionee devices at its Sri City facility in Andhra Pradesh. We can't wait to see if manufacturing of the iPhone in India will drive down its exorbitant prices in the country. if that happens, Apple could be looking at gaining its lost momentum in the Indian smartphone market.
