Apple iPhone XR is now being assembled in India. Apple has reportedly begun commercial production of one of its most popular iPhone models in India. The company has now started shipping iPhone XR phones with ‘assembled in India’ printed on retail boxes.
The news comes just three months after the Cupertino company started assembling the iPhone XR and iPhone XS through Foxconn Technology Group in Chennai. Apple CEO Tim Cook said, ‘India has been very important markets in the long-term and next on his list are retail stores and local manufacturing of high-end smartphones.’
IT and Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Monday went on Twitter with iPhone XR that was “assembled in India” in his hand.
“As promised, delighted to receive an iPhone XR, which reads “Designed by Apple in California and Assembled in India”. I expect further expansion of manufacturing in India by #Apple,” Prasad tweeted.
Apple iPhone XR is one of the best phones from the company after the recent line-up, has a great battery life with a decent price tag and comes in various colours. It is a more budget and fashion-conscious iPhone and if you’re still using an iPhone 6S or an iPhone 7, it will be a huge upgrade in terms of better cameras, battery life, design and display.
The iPhone XR is now a year old but in terms of performance, it is still more powerful than the recent Android flagship phones in terms of raw computing capabilities. The A12 Bionic chipset is plenty powerful for anything and since the iPhone XR got a big battery, it is known to deliver an impressive all-day stamina with some juice left for the next day. And while the iPhone XR may be laughed at for its 720p LCD screen, it’s one of the best LCD screens on a smartphone.
The retail box of the iPhone XR 128GB version shows Rs 81,900 but Apple recently slashed the price of the phone to Rs 54,900 amid competition. After the recent announcement of Apple’s new iPhone 11 line-up, the XR has been receiving discounts during various sale events happening on Amazon India and Flipkart. One can find the iPhone XR retailing at Rs 44,900 during the on-going sale on Amazon which is perhaps its best buy price. Otherwise, the phone is priced at Rs 49,900 for the base variant with 64GB in India.
