Update – Tech
Apple has moved a significant portion of its production of AirPods to Vietnam. This news follows an announcement of the tech giant’s new, upcoming version of the wireless headphones unveiled just a few weeks ago.
Starting from this quarter, close to 30 percent of Apple’s original AirPods will be made in Vietnam, rather than China.
While China still remains the main manufacturing base for Apple, sources have reported that the company has been asking suppliers since last year to move 15 to 30 percent of its Chinese production to other areas of Southeast Asia.
Apart from Vietnam, the company has also been looking to other countries, like India, last October, where many iPhone XRs were assembled.
