The commercial tensions between China and the United States, Apple could opt for a relocation of part of their production. Among the dream destinations, Apple could resort to Vietnam.
The possibilities are many for Apple, but according to him Nikkey Asian Review, Apple would consider producing some of its products in Vietnam. Apple would also begin testing the production of its next wireless headphones in this country.
This change in country of production would not have many consequences for the products, as Apple would continue to appeal to one of its main Chinese suppliers, GoerTek, which already has a factory in northern Vietnam.
It would still be a great first for the California company since its AirPods were so far produced in China, for Inventec, Luxshare-ICT and GoerTek.
This relocation would be mainly the next generation of AirPods, scheduled for the end of the year.
Given the complicated situation between China and the United States, Apple could move between 15 and 30% of its production outside of China.
