Apple to soon start making iPhone 6s in India - but which model?

Recent Counterpoint research revealed that the iPhone 6 series contributes to nearly one-third of total sales of iPhones in India in 2017, as compared to less than 15 percent generated from iPhone SE, the only Apple smartphone model to be locally assembled in the Wistron plant till now.

According to The Economic Times, "Apple has begun trial production of iPhone 6s Plus - one of its highest selling models in India - at the Bengaluru facility of its contract manufacturer Wistron". The iPhone 6S Plus also has the advantage of coming in rose gold, a discontinued color for newer iPhones. According to the executives, the production of iPhone 6s Plus in India will cut down its prices by 5-7 percent. The local production of iPhone 6S may eventually lead to price decrease on the model as it will stay unaffected by the government's customs duty.

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.

School districts prioritizing employee health by offering worksite clinics
Royer said she wanted to see the income taxes raised on high earners as a means to provide additional dollars to the classroom. In announcing an end to the walkout, the Oklahoma Education Association said it was now focused on the November elections.

"However, the price correction may not be reflected immediately since Wistron will not be able to fully meet the entire requirement of iPhone 6s Plus in India and imports from China will continue", a senior industry executive said. This will also allow the iPhone to fall in the same price segment as a OnePlus phone or some Samsung phones. This might serve as more of a cost correction though, since the company had to hike iPhone rates when the government raised customs duty in December last year and February this year. Meanwhile, Apple has joined their hands with the local partners in India, including chargers, adapters and box packaging.

In April, the finance ministry, as part of its "make in India" initiative and to encourage local components sourcing, increased the taxes on camera modules, connectors and PCBs (printed circuit boards), a major part of the mobile, which houses the processor, RAM, storage and more.
