Lol, they are not manufacturing here, they're gonna assemble here, that's it. India doesn't have factories that manufactures different parts that can be put together & make an iPhone & also that meets apple standards. They're planning to manufacture in future may be after 2 years if the demand for Apple phones in India increase & their market share increases but it will be really tough to make it happen coz we are not a Manufacturing country like China which has so many industries & also to meet international standards desired by apple, will be touch to meet that.

That 12.5% benefit will not be passed to the consumers directly, there is lot of things that must be taken into consideration. Look at Brazil now, Apple's only other market apart from china where they assemble iPhones is Brazil & the cost of an iPhone in Brazil is one of the highest in the world i.e. 1100$ or so which is almost the double what an iPhone costs in U.S. So when starting a production & assembly line there are lot of things that must be considered & even Apple cannot tell exactly at present that what will be the price of an iPhone from next year for Indian market. It may be more than the current price. The consumers will probably benefit in the long term/after few years, i'm expecting no immediate benefits for atleast 2-3 years.

There was a recent piece on Foxconn's iPhone manufacturing operations in China. A lot of incentives were given.

A photo from the above piece:


CAPTION: Behind an open-air mall, dormitories for Foxconn factory workers. The local government built large sections of employee housing as part of its deal with Foxconn.

If Apple Makes In India, It Will Be A Win-Win For Everyone

Apple sold 2.5 million smartphones from October 2015 to September 2016 in India. Making the phones in India would mean more sales. The brand is well liked here and it has already taken the second spot among smartphone makers in terms of revenue. These figures mean that there should be plenty of scope for developers to develop quality iOS apps that are India-centric.

It is a known fact that iOS users spend much more money than an average Android user. A report suggests that on average, Apple users spend 2.5 times more than Android consumers. So, just as there are many apps developed in China to cater their specific geographical and cultural needs, India too should get a boost in app development. Android developers too will benefit from a livelier and more competitive environment.

The good news for Apple consumers will be easier access to devices and post-sales services. The current high prices should also come down. Though there would be tax implications, perhaps the government could waive off import duty as a special case.

Apple's presence in India would also put pressure on Chinese manufacturers to become more competitive in selling their premium devices. The eventual winner, hopefully, would be the Indian consumer.
