There will be made in India iPhones. As it was very costly to buy an iPhone in India, as Apple sells its iPhone with a conversion rate of $1 – INR 100. Apple has to pay their taxes and custom duty on every device to sell in India. Therefore it charges the iPhone at a high price for selling in India.
India is a huge market for smartphone buyer. Apple did face the problem for increasing its buyers in India, due to the rise in every new iPhone each year. And now the flagship iPhone is priced at INR 1 Lakh in India.
For lowering the iPhone price in India Apple have thought to manufacture the iPhone in India. Apple will remove its manufacturing unit in China as it is not as safe as per USA rules. The company sees risk in manufacturing iPhones in China, as the USA has banned Huawei products in their country.
Apple will manufacture some of its iPhone in India and will hit the stores next month.
