Apple’s largest iPhone plant Resumes Production Following Supply Issues
iPhone users can rejoice as Foxconn, the largest iPhone plant in the world, based in Zhengzhou, China, is resuming operations at peak capacity as production had taken a massive hit in the past few weeks due to lack of supply, which made it difficult to meet consumer expectations of iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Foxconn is the largest supplier to Apple that has resumed work with renewed vigour at peak production capacity as limited production had taken a considerable toll on the work operations of the whole unit.
The Zhengzhou plant was also known as iPhone City, which has the reputation of producing a huge majority of high-end iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max that met with extremely positive reviews from consumers.
In November 2022, thousands of workers had fled their jobs and staged protests against the Covid-19 curb that had been put in order and as the movement gathered momentum throughout the country, Foxconn was left with little choice but to end the restrictions the following month and increased incentives for new and existing employees.
While Apple had already informed consumers of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max shipments to fall due to the Covid-19 restrictions, China’s zero-Covid policy also required numerous cities to quell these outbreaks by using the restrictions, as many workers were returning home to avoid getting trapped in case the lockdown period was extended.
Fortunately, the supply of iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max has improved considerably in the past few weeks, due to which Foxconn has started out again with renewed hopes so as to meet up to consumer expectations.
