From CNBC, channeling Nikkei Asian Review: “Apple is reportedly starting to build some of its AirPods in Vietnam“…
Apple is shifting some of its AirPods production to Vietnam this quarter, the Nikkei Asian Review reported Friday.
Roughly 30%, or 3 million to 4 million, of the company’s classic AirPods will be produced in Vietnam rather than China, according to the report. The move will continue to diversify Apple’s supply chain, a process it began to accelerate in the past year due to U.S.-China trade tensions.
My take: That was fast.
