Apple Plans to start selling Made in India iPhone 12 from mid-2021
While we are waiting for the iPhone 12 unveiling which has been delayed formally, a fresh media statement has surfaced detailing Apple’s strategy for the Made in India iPhone 12 options. The details are coming from Business-Standard, citing sources common amid the issue and in-house progress.
The information points out that Apple is aiming to build the iPhone 12 in India through Wistron’s manufacturing plant within Narasapura, Bangalore. The entire project will see the company make an investment of more than INR 2,900 crore as it will also be employing 10,000 new workers for the job. The project has previously been ongoing with about 1,000 workers manufacturing.
The trade of Made-in-India iPhone 12 is tipped to commence around the middle of 2021. This means we can anticipate the sales to begin anytime around May 2021. It is understood that the sale of these options will be restricted to the Indian market, slightly at the launch phase. The move will aid Apple to save an important amount of money that it has to spend on import duties otherwise.
If correct, it will be the seventh iPhone model that Apple will produce locally in India. The mainly recent one is the iPhone 11 that went under production last month. It is anticipated to bring the pricing down in the country but no authorized price drop has been made known yet. It is also believed that Apple is to make an affordable iPhone SE (2020) in India however the timeline is unknown.
