The Indian factory is already Wistron iPhone SE. Maybe soon this company will be responsible for producing one of the most long lasting models of smartphones Apple — iPhone 6S Plus. It is reported by Cult of Mac.
The company has already produced a trial batch of handsets at the plant in Bangalore. If all goes well, mass production will be launched in a few weeks.
Apple has moved production of some models of iPhone in India to make smartphones more affordable for local buyers. Moreover, the tax reform that occurred in the country in the summer of 2017, let the company significantly reduce costs.
For the modernization of production Wistron required investment in the amount of 157 million dollars.
The transfer of production will reduce the cost of the new iPhone 6S Plus 5-7% at least for Indian users, which will make it quite attractive, especially in comparison with offers of competitors.
However, the representatives of the plant say that their capacity is not enough to fully meet the demand for the gadget, and so some devices will still be produced in China.
