Apple iPhone to Be Made in India Starting April 2017

Browse This Page

The news is official, Apple will start to manufacture iPhones in their new Bangalore plant early April. The Taiwanese company Wistron Corp. will be doing the on ground assembly for Apple in Karnataka. The iPhones manufactured in India will be meant for the Indian market only and will not be exported at the time.

Apple in terms of manufacture has demanded a 15 year tax holiday from the government to start the manufacturing process, which is still being negotiated.

Apple will soon after launch Apple owned and operated Apple Stores in several major metropolitan cities of India including Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chandigarh and Ahmadabad. Apple Stores will bring about reforms in Apple Care services being offered in India which suffer due to poor operation standards of Apple Resellers.

It is safe to say that Apple’s next iPhone, which is also the 10th Anniversary iPhone will be assembled right here in India for the Indian market. Whether this will affect pricing and quality standards is yet unknown.

    I think u have seen in other angle,
    Reason for price rise- land value is higher, electricity costly, u have to give money to local politicians, goondas, rowdy, hafta yo police, funds to political parties, funds to NGO’s run by underworld don’s, political ppl, Rowdys, uff list is not complet yet

  • Vivaan Raghuvanshi

    Rohit Singh because apple doesn’t have its own stores in india. It comes through import and then resellers sell it and due to import duties and distribution charges it costs more than any country. Prices will surely go down if its actually going to happen.

  • Varun Jain

    Cost of made in India iPhone will be more than 100000?. Because it’s made in India written in bottom

  • Gurbaj Singh

    I don’t think they are going to drop the price .. rather Apple would have higher profit for themselves due to the comparitively cheaper work force over here..

  • Keyur Bhesania

    hardware gonna be costly in new budget, so either way no price deduction in apple.

  • Rohit Singh

    How come? like Samsung s6 and s7..
    Both made in India price above 50 k

  • Ayush Singh

  • Devangshu Mandal
