Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is trending after Bloomberg reported that India isn’t necessarily inclined to grant generous concessions such as softening local sourcing regulations to Apple so that the company can produce iPhones in the country. With President-elect Trump asking Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) to bring more manufacturing back home and Chinese wages steadily trending higher, Apple’s iPhone labor manufacturing costs could increase if the company does not find adequate adjusting mechanisms.
