Apple looks to boost production outside China: reports

By

Apple Inc (AAPL.O) has told some of its contract manufacturers that it wants to increase production outside China, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

The report added that India and Vietnam, which are already Apple production sites, are among the company’s shortlisted alternative countries.

Apple last month predicted a bigger supply problem as the COVID-19 lockdown slowed production and demand in China.

Apple cited China’s strict anti-coronavirus policies among other reasons in making the decision, the report said.

Apple declined to comment to The Wall Street Journal, and Reuters could not immediately reach Apple on Saturday.
