Anonymous, 19 hours agopopulation -wise?Apples views this huge population for mobiles as an advantage because it already ranks at 10th place with a market share of 62% on permium segment is a big number. By starting in india these numbers are going to improve. Hence its not a bad idea from apples perspective.

Country with the least poverty rate is the best choice if they really want to sell all of these iphone.
Average salary is equivalent of 300$ which puts the SE out of reach for the majority of Indian population.
Indians are not poor ... they need better versatility , androids suits it ... if iphone would make anyone boss , every second person here would have it ... we think about long term benefits not just few day show off .

Apple is luxury smart phone brand. But India is a poor country. Why Apple manufacturing in India? It's Worst idea.
I guess Chinese labour is no longer cheap enough for the money-grubbing so-and-sos
Julliard, 18 Feb 2017Well said. Even India income per capita is not at a satisfying level yet for a luxury lifestyle. But you forgot to mention that it is growing at one of the fastest rate in the world. Apple is looking at future when India and china will loosen the burden of oppression and become number-1 and number-2 economy in the world.
Already India is the fastest growing economy in the world.

To capture Indian market, Apple should also produce budget iPhone that cost US$100 and below.
very less possibility.
the main profit of selling iphone is "apps store purchases"
Apple will want to sell iphones to those who can purchase apps.
apple wont focus its sale to the people who wants only free apps

I am from Automobile sector n I now its not relevant here but most of the spare parts in Europe is either made in India or China or Taiwan Korea etc.. and they are quite trustworthy to be installed in their vehicles e.g. brake pads.
So what's wrong with Made in India iPhones when you readily buy Made in China iPhones!

But when they say iPhone is also made in China, then everybody loses its mind.
Does't matter where it is design, it will always be "Made in China". Either that or Korean made phones.
