India is one of the most expensive countries where one can buy the latest iPhones. The primary reason behind this is obviously the fact that exorbitant import duty is levied on the smartphones and gadgets that are not manufactured in the country. Apple has not started manufacturing high-end iPhones in India yet, its smartphones also have the import duty levied on them. Last week, IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad announced that iPhone manufacturer Wistron’s new plan for manufacturing in India has been approved by the government. This means that Apple will soon start manufacturing its high-end smartphones like iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR in India, and hence, will be able to sell them at a cheaper price.
Till this happens, you can buy the latest iPhones from other countries if you don’t want to spend as much as their Indian price.
