With the decision of the Chinese government to tighten the corona restrictions, the production of iPhones is expected to decrease significantly.

With the announcement of the Chinese government, the corona restrictions have intensified in this country once again. While many markets are back to normal, China is apparently still struggling with the coronavirus, which is not good news for Apple. This American company has its largest assembly plant in China, which also produces many phones annually, but it is expected that the company will reduce its production by 30% with the aforementioned restrictions. As a result of this issue, it may be difficult to find some iPhone models in the coming weeks.

An internal source in a conversation with Reuters claimed that this reduction in production will be implemented from next month. Of course, the company affected by these conditions is the main branch of Foxconn, which is located in Zhengzhou. Now this company expects to be able to partially compensate for this reduction in production in another branch located in Shenzhen.

On Sunday, Foxconn announced that it is trying to are so that they can control the situation. In general, Foxconn is responsible for 70% of the total production of iPhones that are sent to the global markets, a limited number of which are also produced in India. In general, this company only earns 45% of its total revenue from iPhone production.

On October 21 this year, Foxconn announced that the situation is normal and the production of iPhones is going well. Less than 10 days ago, Foxconn announced in an interview with Reuters that the company located in Zhengzhou is still stable and has received the least impact from the corona restrictions. Reuters also said that Foxconn had to hire 200,000 new employees because many of the company's employees left the company after strict restrictions were imposed to prevent the spread of the virus.

Despite the publication of such news. Another source says that the situation is still normal and the production of products continues. Of course, this does not mean that the production of iPhones will not decrease, because it seems that this will happen. This is not good news for Apple, because just before the holiday season, when the demand for iPhones usually increases, the company has to reduce its production. The outbreak of Corona in the Foxconn company, among these cases, it can be mentioned that it is forbidden to eat in a group in a hall. In this way, employees only have to eat in their dormitories. China follows the corona restrictions extremely seriously and does not want even one sick case to exist in the cities, as a result, it has forced a complete quarantine. Of course, a series of businesses are open on the condition that the businessmen live in their workplaces.

From October 19 until now (almost 10 days), 264 cases of corona have been found in Zhengzhou, and Foxconn is not at all. He did not mention whether there were employees of this company or not. Of course, this company has taken strict policies to protect the health of its employees, but some people are upset because of these restrictions.

Currently, we don't know which iPhone models are going to be affected by this 30 reduction. A percentage of production may be scarce in the market, but in general, since 2020, Apple has been hit many times due to the corona virus and related restrictions. However, Foxconn is desperately trying to find a way to prevent Apple from losing because this American company is extremely important to Foxconn.
