Apple fans can rejoice as the firm will finally start manufacturing iPhone X in India. Foxconn is believed to be another contract manufacturer hired by Apple which will commence iPhone X’s production in Chennai factory this July. A report claims that Foxconn has been doing some trial runs in the aforementioned factory of the iPhone X.
This isn’t the first time Apple phones are being manufactured in India. Wistron, a Taiwanese firm was hired by Apple to manufacture iPhone SE a few years ago. It is also responsible for producing the iPhone 6S model, now making a jump to iPhone 7. The new manufacturer said in a report, “Foxconn will begin with the iPhone X (range) from the Chennai plant. The plans are to step up production capacity and diversify to even higher models going forward.”
Apple is also eyeing to manufacture iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and the mammoth iPhone XS Max in the coming years. Will manufacturing these expensive flagships in India cut prices? Nothing is known as of yet but we do hope Apple slashes the price by a slight margin.
