The production of the majority of Apple’s devices is done in China, the iPhone, iPad, AirPods and other devices are 90 percent made in China.
According to a recent report, Apple is looking into the possibility of moving up to 30 percent of its production outside of China.
Apple has assembled a team of around 30 to 40 people to work out whether this can be done and what implications this will have for the company.
The US and China re in the middle of a trade war so it would make sense for Apple to look outside of China for production of some of its devices. One of Apple’s suppliers, Foxconn previously said that it was ready to produce Apple devices outside of China.
Apple is also looking at other suppliers which include Compal, Pegatron, Quant and more to see whether they can produce devices for them outside of China.
