Apple will start assembling iPhones in India by the end of April, according to a statement from information technology minister Priyank Kharge.

Bloomberg reports that Apple has tapped Taiwan's Wistron Corp to assemble iPhones in Bangalore. Executives from Apple met with Kharge in January and confirmed the timeline.

“Apple’s iPhones will be made in Bangalore and all devices will be targeted at the domestic market,” said Kharge, IT minister for Karnataka, of which Bangalore is the capital. “We did not discuss any other incentives,” he said.

“In the longer term, it’s a great move,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said on a recent earnings call. “We are in discussions on a number of things, including retail stores, and fully intend to invest significantly in the country.”

Currently, Apple ranks tenth among smartphone vendors in India and accounts for only 2% of shipments in the country.

they are a private company and can do business as they see fit where ever they want. It's called freedom. Now whether or not they'll have to pay an import tax per product then that's up to us as a nation as well.

Your beloved sugar daddy Donald run for President, just to increase his own benefit, granting himself the right to build pipelines, removing any restrictions on bank credits for his friends and family. I hope you are a pussy, so he can grab you and do it all right to you soon!
