Apple moves their plants

Apple soon be moving their manufacturing plants to India. I know that their financial situation is really bad now, and the fact that they decided to move plants to India make the whole situation even worse than it can be. i have nothing against India and it's citizens, but in fact they have cheapest labor in the world. How do you think it may affect on the product quality?

Can you clarify something?

You claim their financial situation is really bad now. This with a company with billions in the bank that they haven't repatriated due to tax laws. Apple may have lowered it's sales forecast but tell me about this bad financial situation. I'm not seeing that.

As to the move to India, good move as manufacturing products in one place isn't that great either.

PS. Services were 7 Billion in 2010.

And 40+ Billion in 2018. That doesn't sound like a bad financial situation.

Nothing bad

About what bad situation do you speak? I know that the quality of products already got worse than ever, but people continue to pay a crazy money just for brand. When there are so many other good products on the market which are twice cheaper and in some cases even better than Apple is.
As for me I don't care where they move and what will they do - I won't buy anything from their product..

It was written

Nothing surprising, Indian workers are lot less wealthy, they demand less rights, and there just so many of them. Indians are actually very smart people, less smart than Asians, but smarter than average. And i don't know tax policy in the current apple production country, but i think India have low taxes, maybe production will be cheaper.

Re: Asian culture

Iran is part of Asia and so is Japan. Do you think they have much culture in common? Can you define "Asian culture"?

India would like to debate if they are in Asia.

Let's not do that here. Stay on topic.

Regardless of where Apple moves their manufacturing plants..

as long as Apple's quality control team is on top of things and the staff are trained properly, the quality of their products should not suffer.
