Apple vs Foxconn feature 2
Some areas of Zhengzhou Airport’s economic zone have been quarantined with immediate effect and people in the area have to stay in their homes and are not allowed to leave. The airport economy zone is where Foxconn’s largest ‌iPhone‌ assembly plant is located, and the shutdown comes after employees have undergone mandatory Covid tests.

China has implemented lockdowns in an effort to curb the spread of coronavirus, and these efforts could have an impact on the manufacture of Apple devices. At the moment, there do not appear to be any ‌iPhone‌ or iPad delays, but Apple has struggled with MacBook Pro shortcomings. Apple suppliers Pegatron and Quanta have also recently halted production in eastern China due to Covid restrictions.

Back in March, Foxconn was forced to suspend production for several days in Shenzhen following a city-wide shutdown that prevented residents from leaving their homes. The shutdown lasted just a few days before Foxconn was able to resume production, with employees living and working at the factory in bubble events.
