In the Middle Kingdom, they are fighting the coronavirus pandemic, which is out of control. Because of this, not only citizens of the country suffer, but also American IT giants.
If you look at the back cover of the iPhone, you can see the following inscription: “Assembled in China”, that is, the assembly is made in China. If you believe the latest news, then the situation in the same Shanghai is getting out of control. But this is still half the trouble, because the city of Zhengzhou fell under the “lockdown”. It is very close to the factories where iPhones are assembled.
What does all of this mean? Factory workers cannot go to work, the state forbids them. And no one can assemble Apple products, causing the supply chain to suffer. Foreign sources say that so far there is no problem with iPhones, but MacBook shipments have already suffered. The biggest concern is Foxconn, the world’s largest iPhone assembly plant, but so far management says the plant continues to operate as normal. But if the local residents were “closed at home”, then this statement is far from the truth.
