Apple iPhone XR Attracted Hordes Of Android Switchers, Research Reveals

Melba Vasquez | 29 December, 2018, 18:47

Early in 2019, Apple's high-end smartphones will start being assembled from a Foxconn plant in Sriperumbudur, as first reported in.

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.

According to a Wall Street Journal report in November, Apple cut production orders for all three iPhone models launched in September. An alternative for companies caught in the trade war crossfire is to up-sticks and manufacture in another country.

The investment may create as many as 25,000 jobs, he added.

Apple products in India are considered to be premium and yet quite expensive, especially with the iPhones.

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

According to a new report by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, Android users are finding the iPhone XR as the best device to upgrade to. Due to import taxes, an iPhone XS 64GB now costs $1421 United States dollars in India!

The brokerage that has "sell" ratings on iPhone assemblers Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd and Foxconn Technology Co Ltd, said it sees Hon Hai as particularly vulnerable, with higher exposure to the new models.

The decision to move assembly from China to India could be prove to be critical to keeping iPhone costs down. If that goes ahead, it will be one of the biggest recent steps by a major company to secure an additional production base outside of China. The American tech giant is looking to steer the business to a new level as far as the Indian market is concerned.

Foxconn has previously expressed concern over demand for Apple's flagship devices.

Apple has been trying to make its iPhones more broad-based in terms of the user community.
