Apple starts production of the iPhone XR in India

A new report by ET Telecom says that the company has just begun production of the iPhone XR in the country, with the intention to manufacture the iPhone 11 in the coming months. Apple has conducted several production tests in recent weeks to ensure that these devices can be manufactured at the Foxconn Chennai in India.

Apple was already producing some of the older models at Wistron (a taiwanese company) in India, as well as the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7, but this is the first time that the new models will be produced there. Sources told ET Telecom that the creation of the iPhone of the latest generation requires technical skills improved, which is why the process has taken a lot of time to start.

These models manufactured in India are not only sold locally but are also exported throughout Europe, making India a global production center“. However, even with Apple which saves about 20% of import taxes, this will not affect the price of the product for the indian consumer for now.

The local government was pushing Apple to produce the whole range of smartphone in India. The company sees India as a huge growth potential in the moment when its economy matures. This is also important for Apple to have alternatives in the production of its products, now with the trade war between the United States and China.

Apple now has a market share of about 2% in India, with Samsung and OnePlus that are its main competitors. That number may increase soon, since iPhone XR and iPhone 11 are selling well in the country because of aggressive pricing and payment options easier.
