The new iPhone XR is coming next month, the handset is the cheapest of the 2018 iPhones and it will cost $749 when it launches.
Before this new iPhone was announced we heard that it had been delayed till October due to production issues, although Apple has yet to confirm this.
Now according to a recent report, Apple is switching the majority of the production of the new iPhone XR from Pegatron to Foxconn, the company was previously expected to split equal production between the two companies.
However, Apple has recently lowered the portion of the iPhone XR orders dedicated to Pegatron to below 30%, while ramping up those to Foxconn substantially, said the report, which added that Pegatron’s production has been affected by a lower-than-expected yield rate and shortages of workers at its plants in China.
Pegatron will now produce around 20% of the handset and Foxconn around 70%, Apple is expecting big demand for the cheaper iPhone which starts at $749. Apple has yet to give a specific release date for their iPhone XR as yet, as soon as we get some more details, we will let you guys know.
