More of Apple’s MacBooks to Be Manufactured by Foxconn
Apple wants Foxconn to be in charge of a bigger part of the MacBook manufacturing process, so the company is now giving the final touches to a plan of transferring orders from Quanta Computer during the course of this year.
Currently the biggest MacBook manufacturer with approximately 79.5% of the production, Quanta is said to be looking elsewhere already in order to compensate from the loss and minimize the impact of Apple’s decision. Quanta is at this point the number one supplier for notebook makers HP, Acer, and ASUS.
DigiTimes says Apple started the production shift in the second half of 2017, as the firm outsourced the assembly for components to Foxconn’s plans in Shenzhen.
