All because of the coronavirus.
Chinese authorities have banned Foxconn from resuming scheduled iPhone production. The company planned to launch production of Apple smartphones on February 10, but due to the threat of infection of workers with the 2019-nCoV coronavirus, the resumption of the iPhone assembly was postponed indefinitely.
Experts previously interviewed by Reuters said that even slight delays in iPhone production would have a significant impact on Apple smartphone sales. In particular, the unannounced low-cost 4.7-inch iPhone 9 (iPhone SE 2), whose production should start in mid-February, is at risk.
Given that the Foxconn factory will be closed at the request of the authorities, the assembly of the smartphone will not begin in the specified time. It is possible that Apple will transfer the production of iPhone 9 to another country, experts say.
