Apple Begins Assembling iPhone 11 In India
Apple has manufactured lower-priced iPhone models in India since 2017 and reportedly has been considering moving production of its more premium models there for some time.
A small batch of locally manufactured iPhone 11 units has already shipped to retail stores, but the production yield is currently limited.
By selling locally-made devices in India, Apple would be able to avoid a 20 percent import duty that India imposes on foreign-made electronics. It’s not clear whether the devices are being manufactured for sale within India only, or for the broader worldwide market.
