According to a report by 9to5Mac on May 21, Apple Inc.is moving forward with plans to “expand manufacturing outside of China”, and has already notified relevant manufacturer partners that Apple’s goal is to diversify production. Apple declined to comment on this.

The vast majority of Apple’s products are made in Foxconn and Pegatron factories in China, only a small number of products made in countries such as Vietnam and India. Apple Inc. has been considering expanding its production origins for a while, but the epidemic situation has slowed progress of this plan.

So far, only China can satisfy Apple’s huge order requirements, finding cheap and qualified labor in other countries and regions is very difficult.  Apple’s manufacture transition to India or Vietnam is also progressing very slowly. However, some sources said that the supply chain for Apple’s new products (such as AR glasses) may likely be located outside of China.

Apple manufacturing partners such as Foxconn have set up factories in India to help produce iPhones for the local market. In April this year, when Apple CEO Tim Cook was asked about Apple’s supply chain, he said Apple’s supply chain was truly global, so products were made all over the world. They would continue to optimize.
