As coronavirus continues to spread in China, Apple is moving some devices to Taiwan, according to DigiTimes .
This applies to AirPods Pro Lite, iPad and Apple Watch. The company is trying to geographically diversify its supply chain due to the spread of the virus, and therefore wants to increase production outside of China.
It is estimated that at least a third of China’s production lines will be idle in the first quarter of this year. It is almost impossible to return to normal production levels until the end of February.
It is also doubtful whether suppliers will be able to resume work during the first ten days of March. [ Taiwan News ]
