The trend started with the iPhone SE, and is now expanding: as reported by The Economic Times, Apple started production of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus at ndia.
The move is a clear attempt by Apple to save: a few months ago, India was one of the main markets in Ma and also one of those with the greatest growth potential, instituted, just two months after the last change of its kind, a new tax increase for imported electronic devices, which increased the rate between 15% and 20%. When manufacturing the smartphone locally, Apple is exempt from this import tax.
It is good to note that the choice of iPhone 6s is not random: following in the footsteps of the iPhone SE, the almost three-year-old model is seen as having great sales potential in the emerging Indian market. The Wistron factory in Bangalore is already producing the model ?Assembled in India?, but not yet in full swing it will start to be sold in the country "soon", without a specific date, and Apple must still import some units of the 6s to sell in Indian territory during this period.
For those who may have been excited, it is also important to remember that the change will not generate any price cuts on the iPhone 6s / 6s Plus, the economy will remain only in Apple's coffers, even. This is until we arrive in September and Apple presents new iPhones, cutting prices from existing ones (as it traditionally does).
