Soon, you will get to buy the iPhone 6s in India at a cheaper price tag as the Cupertino-based giant has started the local production of the iPhone. After iPhone SE, this will be yet another smartphone that will be locally produced in the country.
Apple has started the commercial production of the iPhone 6s in India since last week at the Bengaluru facility of Wistron, reports The Economic Times. The brand is also reported to expand its local unit by commencing trial production of yet another Made in India iPhone.
“The made-in-India iPhone 6s will be only sold in India like iPhone SE since it will take time to scale up capacity. In fact, Apple will continue with the import of iPhone 6s until capacity improves. Hence, there will be no price correction for the locally manufactured units. The made-in-India iPhone 6s model will hit the stores soon,” an executive told the publication.
To recall, the brand started the assembly of the iPhone SE last year. This move will surely help Apple to bring down the cost of the iPhone 6s as it will be exempted from the import duty. The move will also help the brand to strengthen its position in the mid-premium segment, which is dominated by the likes of Samsung, OnePlus and more.
