img As The main reason for the transfer of production of top-end iPhone models to India, Reuters sources, is Apple’s desire to strengthen its position in the local smartphone market. By starting the assembly of branded devices in the country, the company will be able to reduce logistics costs and reduce their retail price. In addition, India may be one of several countries where Apple will resume selling the iPhone X, which was discontinued earlier this year.

Interestingly, the trade standoff between China and the United States, which may cause an increase in prices on the iPhone due to the introduction of import duties, does not have anything to do with the transfer of production. In any case, the interlocutors of Reuters, familiar with the situation, have never mentioned it. In this regard, there is every reason to believe that the possible appreciation of the iPhone in the States worries Apple less than sales in the Indian market.

Earlier it was reported that Apple’s assembly partners are considering the possibility of moving the production of iPhone outside of China in the case of import duties. One of the priority countries where Foxconn and Pegatron could start assembling the company’s smartphones was Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam. However, according to rumors, in Cupertino they reacted to such a prospect quite unusually, stressing that they will take up this issue closely only if the duties exceed 25% of the price of the devices.
