Apple may assemble iPhone in Vietnam

The Vietnamese media Vietnamnet recently quoted Luxshare Vietnam as saying that Apple executives have visited the company's production base several times to assess the possibility of iPhone production locally. In other words, if the quality of Luxshare's local factory is affirmed, some iPhones may be assembled in Vietnam in the future.

However, the report also pointed out that the company's plant in Bac Giang province still cannot meet Apple's requirements. Only when the local factory can meet the standards required by Apple, the iPhone will have the opportunity to be assembled there.

In addition, well-known analyst Guo Mingchi stated in the latest research report that the iPhone 12 lens supplier is facing production quality-related issues, but it should not affect the launch schedule of the new iPhone.
