Apple would have chosen Luxshare Precision for the production of the next Apple Watch Series 6 and some old iPhone models.
Luxshare Precision he has been working with Apple for years and deals with the production of devices such as AirPods and Apple Watch. Given the good results achieved to date, Apple would have decided to give more responsibility to this supplier and to assign them most of the production of Apple Watch Series 6 and of old iPhone models.
With this move, Apple would further diversify its supply chain, reducing the risks associated with a shortage of devices when the demand is very high. Also, in the second half of 2021, Luxshare is expected to produce most of the iPhone cases made by Apple.
In this way, Foxconn could take care of the production of the new iPhones, while Luxshare and other suppliers will take care of the production of older iPhone cases and models. In addition, Luxshare Precision is expected to be the key supplier for the production of the next Apple Watch Series 6 expected in the second half of 2020, together with Foxconn and Caompal Electronics.
