The iPhone 6s Plus may have a lower price in the near future, according to The Economic Times. The news site reported that the company may start iPhone 6s Plus production at a factory in India. The move would lower the price of the model, which is not the latest but still a popular one.
The factory would lower the price of the big version of the iPhone 6s. Apple has some of the most expensive phones in the market and the news site reports that the move would match some of the prices from other popular smartphone makers such as Samsung.
Back in May 2017, the company began manufacturing the most affordable iPhone, the iPhone SE. The smartphone, released nearly two years ago, was a few hundreds dollars cheaper than the iPhone 6s, which was the latest Apple phone at the time. The impressive part about the iPhone SE is its hardware, which is the same as the iPhone 6s.
The iPhone SE kept a similar design to the iPhone 5s but the smartphone was a success due to its price and the hardware. Apple has not confirmed if the SE series will return this year.
The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus were announced back in September 2015 but the phone is still very popular. The Plus version has a large display, 4K recording and a few other good features. The report only mentions the iPhone 6s Plus but they do say that the company is planning to bring more models to production in the future.
The iPhone 6s Plus would be the second iPhone to be manufactured in the country. This is good news, especially for Apple fans in India since iPhones are very expensive there. In January 2018, reports revealed that the company sold just 2.5 percent of India’s smartphones.
Apple could have big plans for the rest of the year as reports say the company is planning to introduce three new iPhones, including the largest iPhone ever. Among the rumored releases is the second version of the iPhone SE, which could end up being the one with the lowest price. The iPhone X starts at $999 and the next releases will probably be expensive, so it is good to hear that Apple is planning to lower the price of the iPhone 6s Plus, which is still a solid device, in the near future.
