Affordable, New Apple Watch SE Is Rumored to Be in the Works

Is Apple announcing a cheaper version of the Apple Watch? Apple iPhone SE is being made in India, why it may be good news for you
Melba Vasquez | 26 August, 2020, 17:20

The new development comes a little over four months after the launch of the latest iPhone model in the country.

The company used to make the original iPhone SE in India too, but has since taken the device off its production line worldwide.

iPhone SE 2020 is being made in India by Cupertino's manufacturing partner Wistron. The 2020 iPhone SE has a glass body and is aimed at people who want smaller screens and can't afford more expensive iPhones, like the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and Pro Max.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple will use a simpler battery in its upcoming iPhone 12 and iPhone 12S smartphones to save on costs. Wistron also makes the iPhone 7 in India in Bengaluru.

Due to the production of the same iPhone SE (2020) in the country, now Apple will not have to pay 20 percent import duty on it, due to which the company can reduce its prices. "At least one report from a reliable leaker says that Apple's two iPhone 12 models will indeed hit store shelves in mid-October as Apple said, but the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max won't be released until November".

The iPhone 12 Pro will come in 6.1-inch or 6.7-inch sizes and may feature a high refresh-rate 120Hz ProMotion display, as presently seen on iPad Pro.

It would be a bold move from Apple: The XR is one of the firm's top-selling mobiles, while the 11 Pro has been hailed as its best phone in years.

More and more new iPhones being gradually added to the making in India list further cements the company's growing interest in the world's second largest smartphone market. It also helps that the iPhone SE will receive up to five years of software support, which is much longer than the support you can expect to receive on similarly priced Android device.
