Partner Wistron has already started trial production of the iPhone 6s Plus at its Bengalore plant, where it has been assembling the iPhone SE since a year ago.

According to a report, Apple has already begun the test production of the iPhone 6s Plus in its Bengaluru unit of its contract manufacturer Wistron, and the commercial production is expected to start in a couple of weeks. To that end, the iPhone SE - Apple's only iPhone with a 4-inch screen - is already manufactured in Indian factories, providing the government with the jobs it seeks while diminishing taxes on that model. The local production of iPhone 6S may eventually lead to price decrease on the model as it will stay unaffected by the government's customs duty. It has set up a new assembly for the production of iPhone 6s Plus. With increased local production, the prices will eventually get corrected, a source revealed to the publication. If prices were to drop that low, it would allow Apple's smartphone to become a more affordable option like OnePlus phones or certain Samsung phones, as noted by The Economic Times.

"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", ET quotes a senior industry expert as saying.

It's only when the local manufacturing plan "gains scale" will the buyers see a price correction. Apple didn't actually reduce the cost of the latter when it began manufacturing it, but domestic production did prevent the rate from increasing. The Indian government announced a 10 percent customs duty on circuit boards, camera modules, connectors, and other parts.

Apple would also try to make the parts and the packaging in India as well.
