While Foxconn is a massive company that helps other companies manufacture and assemble their products, it’s safe to say that the company is usually associated with Apple. Both companies appear to have a very mutually beneficial relationship where Foxconn handles the bulk of Apple’s manufacturing for products like the iPhone.
Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus, many companies around the world, especially in China, have been forced to shut down and temporarily halt operations. Foxconn was one of the companies that was affected, but now according to a report from Reuters, it seems that things have returned to normal.

With reports of the Wuhan virus making its rounds, this is no doubt going to be disruptive for the everyday lives of people, which unsurprisingly could also affect businesses. Recently, there have been reports suggesting that it could have the potential to affect the production schedule of devices like the iPhone, which are manufactured in China.
Foxconn is one of the main manufacturing partners of Apple, where the company is responsible for putting together Apple products like the iPhone.

It was reported recently that Foxconn might expand iPhone manufacturing in India, particularly for its latest models, and now the confirmation comes from Terry Gou himself, who is the Chairman of the Foxconn Technology Group. He confirms that the iPhone will enter mass production in India later this year.
Foxconn is one of the biggest contract manufacturers on the planet and it has been manufacturing iPhones for Apple for quite some time now. It may now be looking to shift some of that manufacturing business to India. According to a new report, Foxconn is looking to shift iPhone manufacturing to the South Asian country as Apple seeks to reduce its reliance on manufacturing in China.
Apple does have a manufacturing partner producing iPhones in India. However, Wistron only makes the cheaper iPhone 6S and iPhone SE models in the country. A new report today claims that Foxconn, Apple’s biggest contract manufacturer, could begin manufacturing flagship iPhones in India next year.
Foxconn, Apple’s contract manufacturer for iPhones, is a behemoth in China’s electronics manufacturing industry. Apple’s iPhones are thus produced in China and that hasn’t been a problem for the company until now as the possibility of iPhones being hit by trade tariffs imposed on China looms large. This would make Apple’s smartphones more expensive in the company’s home country. It’s possible that Foxconn might move iPhone production outside China to […]
Foxconn is a name that some might think of when it comes to manufacturing iPhones. Belkin on the other hand is a brand that some might associate with smartphone accessories, such as cables, cases, chargers and so on. Now it looks like both companies will be one, or to be more specific, Foxconn will be acquiring Belkin.
It was reported recently that student interns at Apple’s manufacturing partner Foxconn were working illegal overtime for assembling the iPhone X.

As it stands, there are several companies such as Google who are testing out their self-driving cars on the roads, and somewhat successfully too. However until the day comes where the majority of cars are self-driving cars, there is the potential for accidents as sometimes it can be hard to predict human driving behavior.
Early iPhone 8 rumors have suggested that Apple could be looking to embed Touch ID into the display of the phone itself, but later leaks and rumors have indicated that Apple could also be considering moving it to the back of the phone, although the more recent leaks have suggested that is no longer the case.
If you want to transfer a file from your phone to another phone, or a phone to a computer, and so on, usually you’d use a cable. This has been the default method for data transfer over the years and while it works, we guess it’s not the most efficient, but that could soon change as companies such as Samsung has backed a technology by Keyssa called “Kiss”.
At this stage in the game, you might think that the rumor mill would have already somewhat settled when it comes to “deciding” what the iPhone 8 could look like or what kind of features it could have. However a recent photo posted onto Chinese website Feng (via Cult of Mac) is throwing us for a loop.
We’re pretty sure that given how long Apple and Foxconn have been working together that the latter company is very familiar with the way Apple does things, and also how much the company values their secrets.

Ever since Donald Trump became the President of the United States, he has made a push for companies such as Apple to bring their manufacturing operations from countries like China and India back to the US. Whether or not they will remains to be seen, but in the past we have heard reports that they could be considering it.
Earlier this year the FTC filed a lawsuit against Qualcomm over alleged antitrust violations. Following that, Apple launched a lawsuit of their own in which they alleged that Qualcomm had withheld payments to them as a form of “punishment” amongst other things. Unsurprisingly Qualcomm did not take these allegations lying down.
