Apple is reportedly planning to start assembling its premium iPhone X-series in India.

Amid reports of Apple halting a production boost for its newest iPhones due to slower than expected demand, a new survey of USA customers revealed that more Android users switched loyalty to Apple this year than in previous years. Meanwhile, Apple's iPhone XS models accounted for 35% of sales.

Still, it could potentially get Hon Hai to make the older iPhone X version in India in a bid to get a bigger share of the world's fastest-growing major mobile phone market. Some reports suggest Apple has cut down on its production seeing the slack demand.

China trade war is bad news for tech companies which have existing manufacturing facilities in China and thus face extra tariffs to sell into the USA market.

The analyst has almost halved expectations on the top-end iPhone XS Max while expecting the Cupertino company to produce 45 million iPhones for the quarter, down from its earlier forecast of 50 million. Reuters further reported that the investment may create as many as 25,000 jobs.

Warren in October released DNA testing results that showed there was "strong evidence" that she has Native American blood. Warren's possible strength in what will be a crowded contest includes her track record of speaking to economic concerns.

Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller declined to comment.

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 the new estimate Apple is expected to manufacture 45 million units for the quarter, down from the 50 million earlier forecast.

"We can infer that Apple positioned the iPhone Xr to appeal to potential operating systems switchers from Android", said Mike Levin, CIRP cofounder. "Part of this belief was based on the company's size and ability to both negotiate pricing and terms with its manufacturers and move its manufacturing out of China", Mr Forte wrote.

This made sense geographically as India sales are now driven by models including the iPhone 8 and older.
