The move will also effectively lessen the cost of these expensive iPhones. However the company is waiting for some approvals after whichit will start shipping the made in India iPhones. It will be done possibly by next month.

Amassing smartphones locally in India will basically help the company to cut down the production cost and also save the custom duty on imported the ready products. As per analysts, Apple can use India as an export hub as well.

"Local production will give Apple the leeway to play with the margins of their distributors and indirectly price their phones lower," Reuters quoted Rushabh Doshi, a research director at tech consultancy Canalys.
