Reuters: iPhone shipments affected if Foxconn stops working

Due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus, Foxconn, one of Apple's main suppliers, has almost completely stopped in China, and many factories will not resume work until at least February 10. Today, Reuters quoted people familiar with the matter as saying that if the shutdown is extended for another week, it may interrupt its supply to Apple and affect the iPhone.

However, he also said that the impact of the current epidemic on Foxconn is relatively small, because some of the company's production capacity has been transferred to Mexico, Vietnam, and India. Therefore, if it can start on February 10, it will still be enough to cover this period of time after overtime Gap.

However, whether the factory can resume production on February 10 will still depend on the regulations of China's central government and provinces.
