Apple, one of the most important names in the technology world, is almost 100% dependent on China for production. Apple, which did not have any complaints about this situation until the coronavirus epidemic, started to have a hard time since 2020 due to the factories that were constantly closing.
However, the fact that the situation was the same in every region of the world during this period made Apple’s plan to go out of China meaningless. However, now the pandemic is almost over, but China continues to stop production at the factories. This was the last straw for Apple.
Saying that he wanted to move his production outside of China in the past days, Apple kept his word this time and made the first move. According to the information provided by sources close to the American technology giant, Apple’s most important producer partner Foxconn and the American company have agreed to move the new facilities to Vietnam.

However, as we have always stated, this will be a process and everything will not come to an end all at once. As a matter of fact, according to the news served by the sources, only MacBook production will be shifted to Vietnam in the first place.
On the other hand, Vietnam is not the only name on Apple’s route. If the leaks are true, one of the countries where Apple wants to shift its production will be India. The fact that India is the only country that can be compared to China in terms of population makes this country a very important human capital home.
Moving Apple’s production line from China will bring an increase in costs. Naturally, this increase will also be reflected in prices. For this reason, it is expected that iPhone models will increase by at least 100 dollars in the coming period. 100 dollars may seem like a small amount, but its reflection on us will exceed 3000 TL with taxes.
