Big deal! It is said that Apple plans to transfer watch and AirPods production to Taiwan

By  Adan Heidbreder 2020-02-25 1091 2

[gearbest News] on Feb. 21, Apple intends to transfer some of its AirPods, Apple Watch and iPad production capacity to contract factories in Taiwan, according to data from DigiTimes. The media speculated that Apple did so because contract factories in mainland China were affected by the epidemic and were unable to resume normal production work for the time being. Apple's previous announcement also shows that the epidemic has had an impact on the company's revenue.

It is understood that Apple has previously transferred its MacBook Air and MacBook Pro product lines to Taiwan, and Apple may have borrowed from this approach. It is reported that Foxconn Group, Apple's largest contract factory in mainland China, has restored only 50% of its production capacity, which cannot meet Apple's shipping requirements. The same is true of other Apple contract factories in China, where nearly 1/3 of the production lines are still closed.


In addition, DigiTimes said that although Apple moved some of the production lines of AirPods, Apple Watch and iPad to Taiwan, most component manufacturers are still located in mainland China, indicating that factories in Taiwan are only responsible for assembling these products. For the time being, it is uncertain whether the news is true, but Apple is likely to make such a decision.
