According to Counterpoint research, Apple leads the ultra-premium smartphone segment-devices priced above Rs 45,000 a unit-driven by iPhone 11 shipments in the second quarter of 2020. The same plant also manufactured the previous generation of the iPhone SE before it was discontinued, and the plans to make the latest generation iPhone SE in India are not clear at this time.
Fox Sports CEO: Baseball Is Back And Fans Are Excited
I love baseball and am very excited to watch my team (which, frankly plays in front of a semi-full stadium more often than I'd care to admit) play this week.
Significant boost to Make in India! Similarly to the iPhone SE series, Apple might continue the trend and could release an iPhone 12e in March 2021 as the affordable version. Wistron has assembled iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 7 models in its Bangalore plant and now assembles iPhone XR units in India.
According to a new report on The Economic Times, the company will step up the production in phases. Moreover, the Cupertino giant may consider exporting iPhone 11 units that are made in India to other countries. Last year in October last year, Apple started manufacturing the iPhone XR locally in India.
Reports suggest that Foxconn plans to invest up to $1 billion to expand its India factory where it assembles iPhone models. After the launch of the PLI scheme in April, OEMs are planning to set up production bases in India. The online store's launch in India remains on track despite the pandemic, a person familiar with the matter said.
