Apple To Assemble iPhones In India Via Local Foxconn Unit Starting 2019

  • Apple's new iPhoneXR represented 32 percent of Apple phone sales in the first 30 days it was available

Foxconn has been assembling lower-end iPhones, including the iPhone SE, in India.

This price may go down to $1000 Dollars once Foxconn starts making iPhones in India. This will be the first time the Taiwanese manufacturer will have manufacture flagship iPhones in India. The report looked at sales of all iPhone models during the first 30 days of availability for the iPhone XR this year. The investment will create up to 25,000 jobs in the country and reduce Foxconn's (and Apple's) manufacturing presence in China. A third source confirmed that Hon Hai plans to assemble iPhones in India. Months later, its budget iPhone- the iPhone XR-became the company's best selling iPhones this year. But within the product mix that it has got now, with the high-end iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XS, the third, the iPhone XR, appears to be doing well.

The Hindu recently reported it, wherein the newspaper underlined that Foxconn plant would be initiating the production of several iPhones.

"This year, Apple launched the more expensive models earlier, presumably trying to catch early demand from the most loyal customers". However, according to a report by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, this year's most affordable iPhone variant - iPhone Xr - has lured more Android users to upgrade to iPhone than last year.

Following the November 2017 launch of the iPhone X, 11 percent of iPhone sales were to customers upgrading from an Android.

Some analysts have concerns that the 2018 iPhone models have sold poorly. The iPhone XS and XS Max had together accounted for around 35%.

Complete details about Apple's deal with Foxconn are not yet clear.

The report also indicates that Foxconn will be responsible for manufacturing of iPhones in India as opposed to Wistron which is now manufacturing lower-end, budget iPhone models in the country.
