More Android Users are Switching to iPhone

Apple iPhones Likely To Be Assembled at Foxconn’s Facility in India By 2019 - Report

Citi Research on Friday slashed its first-quarter production estimates for Apple Inc's iPhones and almost halved expectations on the costliest iPhone XS Max, joining other brokerages in lowering forecast amid reports of weak demand.

The report has also revealed that compared to last year's iPhone 8 and iPhone X, the attractively priced iPhone XR has caused more Android users to switch to iOS.

Previously Apple only manufactured its lower-end, budget iPhone models such as iPhone SE and previous-gen iPhone 6s but if this new report is anything to go by, Apple will start making its flagship iPhone models such as iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR and even next-gen 2019 iPhone models in Tamil Nadu, India.

This is a great move for Apple, because, in recent years, the government of India has placed an exorbitant charge on any imported smartphones, while charging lower import rates on smartphone parts, so as to ensure that producers build their devices in India and boost country's manufacturing business.

The investment is expected to create as many as 25,000 new Indian jobs, he added.

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

On Accidental Prime Minister row, Anupam Kher says, ‘we can’t change history’
He says, "My first reaction was I should not be part of this film because Dr Manmohan Singh is a current political personality". However defending the tweet, Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore questioned the Congress's stance on freedom.

Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller declined to comment.

Apple's high-end iPhone production is moving to India next year, according to a new report.

Still, it could potentially get Hon Hai to make the older iPhone X version in India in a bid to get a bigger share of the world's fastest-growing major mobile phone market.

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

For Apple, widening assembly beyond China is critical to mitigate the risks of the Sino-U.S. trade war.

The iPhone XR unquestionably represents one of the more compelling devices Apple has ever released.
