An official said Wistron will start making iPhone 6 and 6s models at a plant in Bangalore. In about three months the iPhone SE will be added to the assembly line.
“Almost all preparations have been done for launching Apple’s first phase project in Bangalore through Wistron,” the official told The Wall Street Journal.
“We’ve been working hard to develop our operations in India,” an Apple spokeswoman said, declining to comment on the company’s specific plans for India. “We appreciate the constructive and open dialogue we’ve had with government about further expanding our local operations.”
