As the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread in
China, Apple is moving the manufacture of some of its top
devices to Taiwan.
Apple has begun to move the production of a number of its top
gadgets set to launch in the first half of 2020, according to a
report by am730, which cited DigiTimes. The products listed in the
report to be shifted to Taiwan include AirPods Pro Lite [sic],
iPads, and Apple Watches.
Apple is trying to diversify its supply chain geographically due
to the spread of the virus, which has seriously affected the
production of Apple products in the communist country. Apple
intends to gradually increase the proportion of production in
Taiwan while still trying to maintain its cooperation with
suppliers on the other side of the strait.
No mention of iPhones.
