According to data from many research institutions, the iPhone XR is currently the world’s best-selling smartphone. In addition to Apple’s gold-plated signboard, there is a relatively cheap and affordable price. This makes it easy to win the world’s top.
However, the global outbreak has also put iPhone XR production into trouble. As many sources claim, Foxconn, Apple’s main supplier, produces iPhone XR in Chennai. But the region is now restricted by India’s COVID-19 ‘cities closure’ measures.

The iPhone XR produced by Apple supplier Foxconn’s Chennai plant in India is expected to be discontinued or at least severely restricted. The Tamil Nadu region must comply with the country’s ‘cities closure’ measures to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.
G Prakash, Commissioner of Greater Chennai Corporation, told the Times of India: ‘we have brought these stringent measures into place. Thirty joint teams of corporation and police will be on rounds checking who violates this.’
After several weeks of trial production, Foxconn has been producing iPhone XR in India since October 2019. But it is believed that Foxconn also plans to produce iPhone 11 in Chennai, India. (According to reports, the iPhone XR currently dominates global smartphone sales.)
In January of this year, a dispute between Foxconn and Apple reported that the manufacturer canceled its $5 billion investment in India. That time, sources said that Apple is considering the production of iPhone XR and other low-end models temporarily relocate to China to meet the needs of the day.
