Apple looking to move iPhone production out of China in wake of violent worker protests: report
Apple collaboration with China ‘disappointing’ but ‘not surprising’: Sen. Blackburn
Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., reacts to reports Apple limited crucial AirDrop function in China in the weeks leading up to anti-COVID lockdown demonstrations in China.
Apple Inc., is accelerating its plan to move iPhone production out of China in the wake of violent worker protests over COVID regulations at the world’s largest iPhone factory, a report by the Wall Street Journal said Saturday.
The plant, dubbed iPhone City, made headlines in recent weeks after workers revolted over COVID-related concerns with security officers decked out in hazmat suits.
Apple is reportedly looking to shift its production toward other nations in Asia like India and Vietnam and to reduce dependence on Taiwanese electronics manufactures like Foxconn which owned the facility in Zhengzhou.
