(VOVWORLD) – Foxconn, the world’s largest computer and electronic components maker, is moving an iPad and MacBook production complex to Vietnam from China at the request of Apple Inc., Reuters said, citing a person with knowledge of the plan.
The production lines are expected to come online in Vietnam in 2021, he added.
According to Bloomberg, Apple’s partners have increased iPhone production capacity in India, and companies that assemble AirPods have added some assembly lines in Vietnam.
