After months of speculation and countless meetings Apple’s all set to manufacture iPhones in India. Within the next two months. For real..
But here’s the disappointing news — Apple will not manufacture its latest iPhone 7 or 7 Plus smartphones, and there’s no report about it planning to make its upcoming 10th anniversary iPhone 8 or iPhone X in India, either. Bummer.
WSJ is citing Karnataka State government official reports claiming Taiwanese manufacturer Winstrom Corp will start churning out Apple iPhone 6 & iPhone 6S models at its Bangalore factory in the next “four to six weeks.”
The same manufacturing unit in Bangalore is also expected to roll out the smaller form factor iPhone SE smartphone later this year.
This eagerly anticipated step from Apple’s supposed to make iPhones cost lesser in India, also help Apple expand its current 5% market share in the smartphone market.
