Apple is currently in talks with the government of India. The American manufacturer seeks to produce its next iPad in the Asian country, as reported by various media. It is one more step in reducing its production in China, as a way to have less dependence on the country. So it is a movement that many were already waiting for.
The firm would be seeking to move part of its production to the country as soon as possible, in order to have less dependence on China. Although no dates have been given at the moment.
Apple has been expanding the production of its products in various markets in Asia for some time. India is the country where they are producing the most, with a portion of their iPhones produced domestically. To this would be added now the iPad, which would go on to be produced in a good part in India. What has not been mentioned is what kind of these tablets would be.
More and more products of the American firm are seen that have been produced in India. The country is becoming an increasingly common contributor, with positive results for Apple. So they will continue to invest in this market.
No dates have been given for the start of production of these iPads in India. Apple seeks to have all its production outside of China, which is why in addition to India, a part of its tablets will be produced in Vietnam, something that was already talked about a few weeks ago.
