Apple to begin iPhone SE assembly in India in coming months

From CNET: India is currently the world's fastest growing mobile market, and Apple wants in.

The company is set to start manufacturing its lower-cost iPhone SE in the country in the coming months, said Reuters on Friday.

Apple will use a contract manufacturer in the city of Bengaluru, which is already home to an Apple design and development center, an industry source told Reuters. A separate source told the company earlier this month that Taiwanese manufacturer Wistron Corp is setting up a plant in the city solely for the purpose of producing iPhones.

A local official, Priyank Kharge, IT minister for the Indian state of Karnataka, also confirmed Apple's intentions to make iPhones in Bengaluru earlier this month, tweeting: "Apple's intentions to make iPhones in Bengaluru will foster cutting-edge technology ecosystem & supply chain development in the state."
