Wistron has reportedly begun a Trial Run of the iPhone 6s Plus and could begin full Production Next Month
In March Patently Apple posted a report titled "Apple Supplier Wistron has been given the Green Light to build a Larger Assembly Plant in India to Expand iPhone Production." Earlier in January we also reported that Wistron may use the new facility to expand to manufacturing the iPhone 6s. We're learning from a report today out of India that a trial run of the iPhone 6s Plus may have actually begun.
According to The Economic Times, "Apple has begun trial production of iPhone 6s Plus — one of its highest selling models in India — at the Bengaluru facility of its contract manufacturer Wistron."
The report further noted that "Wistron has set up a new assembly line for iPhone 6s Plus production, and commercial production is expected to start in next couple of weeks, they said.
As per the executives, locally produced iPhone 6s Plus could bring down prices by 5-7%, which will make its price competitive to China's OnePlus smartphones and some premium models of Samsung." For more on this, read the full Indian Times report here.
