Back in May ^(, India was once actively advertising and marketing the iPhone 6S as a telephone “made in India” regardless of its age (it was once launched again in 2018). The most up-to-date iPhone this is produced in India is the iPhone 7 – it began generating them in April ^( of this yr. The higher-end fashions had been long-rumored ^( to ultimately be produced as neatly, nevertheless it was once now not recognized precisely when.

India is a large smartphone marketplace, however one that Apple does now not do neatly in. Import taxes stay iPhone costs rather over the top and Chinese competition dominate the lower-income marketplace. Producing Apple units in India reduces the desire to pay import taxes and Apple desperately wishes to promote inexpensive if it desires a bigger piece of the pie.

We wonder whether Apple will all at once drop the cost of the iPhone XS and XR in India as soon as it begins to promote them in the neighborhood made or if Apple will take a look at to wait till the following iPhone is introduced ahead of “losing” their worth.
