Apple is all set to roll out its first phase of Made in India iPhones. The company told CNBC that it has completed a trial run with "a small number of iPhone SE". These phones are expected to be cheaper than their imported counterparts.

As India gears up to overtake the U.S. to become the world's second largest smartphone market this year, Apple has been trying to grab a bigger piece of the action, writes CNNMoney

The local manufacturing base of Apple at the Bangalore plant is run by its partner, Taiwanese contract manufacturer Wistron.

Apple hasn't been able to set up its retail stores in India so far due to the government restrictions which require foreign vendors to build their products locally.
