Apple plans to start making another iPhone in India

As per the executives, locally produced iPhone 6s Plus can bring down prices by 5-7%, which will make its price competitive to China's OnePlus smartphones and some premium models of Samsung, which were insulated from price hikes due to the rise in customs duty since they are all locally produced in the country.

Following up on a January report that Apple planned to produce affordable iPhone 6s models at a new production facility in Bengaluru, India, the country's Economic Times said today that Apple is trialing iPhone 6s Plus production, with plans to begin domestic manufacturing in two weeks.

The only Apple smartphone which escaped this increase was the iPhone SE. So what real benefit will Apple have in producing the iPhone 6s Plus? The country raised imported smartphone tariffs from 10 to 15 percent last December, and then from 15 to 20 percent this February.

But the source told IBTimes India, that the model, which the company is planning to roll out from the Bengaluru plant is the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s model and not the iPhone 6s Plus. The iPhone 6S Plus will be similarly protected, so here's hoping the brand adjusts the figure accordingly. According to industry executives, Apple is in talks with manufacturers like Flex, Foxconn and Wistron to expand local sourcing, including components.

It's only when the local manufacturing plan "gains scale" will the buyers see a price correction.

The tech giant has reportedly expanded its local sourcing initiative to two more parts in India, which now includes chargers, adapters and packaging boxes.

The iPhone 6S Plus is also among the last iPhones to come in Rose Gold as Apple discontinued for newer iPhones. However, this may not happen immediately since Wistron won't be able to fully meet the requirements for the iPhone 6S Plus straight out of the gate.
