The Taiwanese company had chosen its plant in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, in the town of Sriperumbudur, to do the work, according to the report.

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.

It should be noted that it's now unknown whether Foxconn is planning to move its existing iPhone assembly from China to India. According to another source, the expansion will allow Apple to manufacture the more expensive models like the iPhone X line in the country.

The flagship iPhones are not the first iPhones to be assembled in India.

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

Hon Hai said it does not comment on matters related to current or potential customers, or any of their products.

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.

So, the breakdown is comparable and the new iPhone XR took the same share of handset sales as last year's model in its first full month of availability in the market.

Complete details about Apple's deal with Foxconn are not yet clear. The U.S. and China are at odds over trade and there has been some suggestion that if a full-blown trade war between the countries erupts, tariffs on iPhones could drive Apple's prices up significantly.

"Widening iPhone manufacturing in India through Foxconn will allow Apple to hedge the risk of any new USA trade policies", said Navkendar Singh, an associate research director at International Data Corporation.
