As of now, Apple makes use of chain outlets, Imagine as well as iStores, to sell its products in the country.

Along with Karnataka, several other states including Gujarat, Maharashtra and Telangana  were in the running for the deal to set up the Apple manufacturing facility.

Alongside the industrial hub of Peenya, the govt. is looking to collaborate with Apple to open up units in other areas as well, citing the want to create a conducive environment for the leading companies in the world, such as Apple itself.

“Apple’s decision on initial manufacturing in Bengaluru has further enhanced the reputation of Bengaluru as the most preferred destination for foreign investment and further validation of the State Government Policies aimed at fostering manufacturing, innovation and investments in Karnataka.”
