Why is the price higher in India?
Not only the devices in the new iPhone 12 lineup, but there is also a big difference between the US and India prices of all iPhones. The reason for this is that Apple does not make its own devices in India and imports ready iPhone units and sells them in India. In such a situation, more tax and import duty is imposed on each unit. Apart from this, the rest of the expenditure also increases and the company has to make its devices expensive. However, Apple has also started production of many iPhone models in India.
