Apple will start making iPhones in India this year as the company seeks to tap into a booming Indian middle class while sales in China slow.

Karnataka’s IT minister said Apple had agreed to assemble its hugely popular phones in the southern State, whose capital Bangalore is India’s technology hub.

Apple, which has not commented on the minister’s statement, remains a relatively small player in India, where sales of its smartphones lag those of rival Samsung.

But chief executive Tim Cook said this week it would “invest significantly” in the country of 1.25 billion people.
