Apple has reportedly chosen Luxshare as an additional manufacturer for the iPhone 15 Pro Max, easing its reliance on Foxconn.
To keep up iPhone production, it will be good for Apple to partner with more suppliers. For example, Luxshare already assembles AirPods for Apple, and won a contract in 2021 to build a portion of iPhone 13 models.
Apple has been gradually moving production of its devices outside of China, and this move won’t aid in that immediately.. The company reportedly plans to move some MacBook Pro production to Vietnam in 2023, after having shifted a portion of iPad manufacturing to the country in 2021.
