Foxconn, the biggest contract manufacturer for Apple, is setting up its first iPhone manufacturing unit in India in Ahmedabad, as the world’s most valuable company looks to increase presence and replicate its China success in the country.
The Taiwanese maker is adopting a model of setting up smartphone assembly lines in multiple cities across India, with a second iPhone facility coming up in Gurgaon, as Apple steps up efforts to grab a larger pie of the world’s fastest growing smartphone market, people familiar with the development said. 
A Gujarat government official, who did not wish to be named, confirmed Foxconn’s plan to set up an iPhone assembly unit in Ahmedabad. An announcement is likely to be made during the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit 2017 to be held on January 10 at Gandhinagar.
