Something quite speculated recently seems to have actually left the paper: as part of your plan to stick both feet in the ndia (which involves opening more than 100 authorized resellers), Apple will begin manufacture devices in the country very soon at least what informed the Wall Street Journal (closed matter for subscribers).
According to the newspaper, Indian government officials confirmed that Ma will start production at a factory located in the city of Bangalore (or Bengaluru, as you prefer; capital and largest city in the state of Karnataka, located south of the country) within a few months. Apple's partner responsible for the venture would be Wistron, initially focusing on the production of iPhones 6, 6s and SE.
Also according to the publication, the production of the iPhones 6 and 6s will start in the next four to six weeks; the iPhone SE is only expected to enter the game in about three months, according to employees familiar with Apple's plans.
Apple's relationship with India is not now. Tim Cook has been meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a while and, in order to be able to tailor beneficial agreements for the company, he has been investing heavily there in less than a year. We saw the opening of a technological development center (evaluated in US $ 25 million), an iOS app design and development accelerator, a map development office, and a Mac lab.
In return for all this investment, Apple seeks, among other things, tax concessions for iPhones manufactured by I; Apparently the Indian government has not yet accepted all of Apple's demand, but mentioned that "trying to accommodate as much of your demands as possible" as the relationship between the company and the country grows.
With a population of 1.2 billion people very close to China, with 1.3 billion, and underway to overcome it, undoubtedly India today is a huge attraction for global companies like Apple.
