Apple manufacturing partner Wistron has secured the land to build a new assembly facility in the south Indian state of Karnataka, Reuters reports. The move could signal an expansion of Apple’s use of facilities in India to manufacture its products, as Wistron claims the facility will be used to create “smartphones, internet of things (IOT) products and bio-tech devices,” according to government filings. The new plant is expected to create around 6,000 jobs in the country, with local employment and resourcing serving as the enticement that has allowed Apple to gain increased access to the larger Indian electronics market.
