More Android Users are Switching to iPhone

iPhone XR Accounted for 32 Percent of Total iPhone Sales in First Month of U.S. Availability

The report underlines that Foxconn will assemble only the most expensive models like the flagship iPhone X family.

It's important to note that Foxconn won't be assembling just any iPhone in India, but its top-of-the-line X series. Now the plant which is located in the town of Sriperumbudur in the southern state of Tamil Nadu produces phones for Xiaomi, OnePlus and Gionee. Moreover, Foxconn - a Taiwanese company is already manufacturing smartphones for Xiaomi.

The Hindu recently reported it, wherein the newspaper underlined that Foxconn plant would be initiating the production of several iPhones. Reuters is first to report the size of the investment and the kind of phones to be assembled.

No doubt, Apple is seeing a decline in its overall sales volumes across the world.

Hon Hai said it does not comment on matters related to current or potential customers, or any of their products.

Until now, Cupertino, California-based Apple has only assembled the lower-cost SE and 6S models in India through Wistron Corp's local unit in the Bengaluru technology hub.

According to a survey conducted in the United States by the Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP), more smartphone users switched from Android ecosystem to the iOS this year than past two years. According to a survey report emerging from the U.S., there has been an increase in the number of people buying iPhone XR, who were earlier users of Android phones. On the other hand, the combined sales from Android users of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus was 12 percent.

Moreover, it is also not clear if any iPhone assembly is being shifted to existing Foxconn facilities in China or somewhere else.

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.

A new study has confirmed fears of disappointing demand for Apple's newest entry-level iPhone.

Apple shares climbed 7 percent Wednesday, finishing the day at $157.17.
