Economic Times: Apple begins iPhone 6s production in India

In March Patently Apple posted a report titled "Apple Supplier Wistron has been given the Green Light to build a Larger Assembly Plant in India to Expand iPhone Production".

The iPhone SE may soon be joined by the iPhone 6S Plus in India, as Apple is reportedly going to begin trial production of the latter in the country. Now, the company has already begun the trial production of iPhone 6s Plus which was one of the best selling models in the country. 2 senior industry executives think this will eventually lead to a 5% - 7% price drop, allowing it to compete directly with OnePlus and Samsung.

Though Apple has made a decision to assemble iPhone 6s in India, there are no plans for the company to start building their new devices in India anytime soon. With increased local production, the prices will eventually get corrected, a source revealed to the publication.

This measure forced Apple to seek methods to keep the price of its phone down and stay competitive.

Is Simon Property Group, Inc. (NYSE:SPG) Producing Enough Return For Investors?
Simon Property Group makes up about 5.4% of Heitman Real Estate Securities LLC's holdings, making the stock its largest position. Ever wonder how investors predict positive share price momentum? Shares are trading price at $15.60 with move of 0.00%.

Apple started assembling the iPhone in India in an effort to reduce costs for local consumers.

"However, the price correction may not be reflected immediately since Wistron will not be able to fully meet the entire requirement of iPhone 6s Plus in India and imports from China will continue", one of them people familiar with the matter says.

Ever since government hiked the customs duty on imports, more and more worldwide brands have been pushing to set up their production locally.

Apparently, it is believed that the locally produced iPhone 6s Plus can bring down prices of the phone by five to seven percent. Apple has been slowly adapting to these changes over the past few months, expanding local sourcing to 2 more partners namely Salcomp for chargers and adapters and Shenzhen YUTO for packaging.
