Apple’s requested that Foxconn shift some of the iPhone’s production outside of China in order to be more flexible in the event of an escalation of the US-China trade conflict, the sources say. The factory in the southern part of India is where Foxconn makes iPhone XRs now. The plans are for other models to also be manufactured there post the expansion.

Neither company has confirmed the reports and Reuters sources remain unnamed.
