Foxconn India Plant Shut for 3 More Days After Week-Long Closure -Govt Source | Technology News


CHENNAI (Reuters) -Apple supplier Foxconn’s plant near Chennai in India will stay shut for three more days, a senior government official said, extending a week-long closure following workers’ protests sparked by a food poisoning incident.

A separate government source had said last week that the plant was closed on Dec. 18 and was expected to remain shut until Dec. 26.

The plant makes iPhone 12 models, and media reports have said Apple has started trial production of its flagship iPhone 13 at the factory recently.
