Although Trump's reign is over, Apple has requested Foxconn to move at least some of its iPad and MacBook production facilities to Vietnam. This move comes as a part of Apple's efforts to diversify production, thus minimizing the potential impact of a new trade war between China and the US.

Although the new president of the US might smooth things out with China, it looks like the recent trade war between the two nations is still having an impact on some companies. Today, it's all about Foxconn and the removal of some production facilities the company is currently running in China to manufacture Apple products.

A recent exclusive report by Reuters reveals that some of Foxconn's lines that are currently involved in manufacturing various iPads and MacBooks will move from China to Vietnam. Foxconn is Apple's main production partner and is currently making up to 70% of all iPhones that hit the market, as well as many of the remaining hardware products designed by the Cupertino-based tech giant.

In addition to Foxconn, Apple is also working with manufacturing partners such as Luxshare Precision Industry and Wistron. On the other hand, they are also taking the steps needed to manufacture in various countries to evade certain tariffs and import restrictions that came into effect recently.

Right now, Foxconn makes iPhone 11 handsets near Chennai, India. Wistron is also making various iPhones in India, and the new Foxconn lines for iPads and MacBooks should begin to operate in Vietnam in the first half of 2021.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
