The demise of the iPhone SE may have been greatly exaggerated: Apple has reportedly signed up Wistron
to assemble an updated version of the 4-inch handset. The Taiwanese firm started producing the model in India in May, and it is likely that the phone will be released in that territory first. Cook said that Apple is upbeat about the Indian market, expecting that India will become the next China. According to the sources, Wistron is expected to start to ship the new iPhone SE -- which is expected to be more affordable than larger iPhones for many Indian consumers -- in the first quarter of next year. The sources said that Wistron will ship to the Indian market first before providing the products to consumers in other markets.
