Japan’s TDK Corporation to manufacture batteries for iPhones in India
To prop up its manufacturing in India, Apple is bringing its global lithium-ion battery manufacturer, TDK Corporation, to India. The leading electronic component and device maker from Japan will manufacture the cells for batteries in India to power the iPhones assembled in the country.
The Japanese firm will open its 180-acre facility in Manesar, Haryana and it will create around 1,000 new jobs, Deputy Minister for Information Technology Rajeev Chandrasekhar said on social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter.
Apple has been looking at India as its next big growth drive as it looks to move some production away from China.
The manufactured cells will be supplied to Sunwoda Electronics, Apple’s Li-ion battery assembler, which imports cells from various global markets.
