Apple is apparently switching to Chinese suppliers for parts for their range of iPhones, many of the parts for Apple’s devices are currently supplied by companies from Taiwan.
According to a recent report from Digitimes, Apple are now ordering various parts for their iPhones from Chinese suppliers.
With their excellent manufacturing capabilities, many Taiwan suppliers used to rely on Apple orders to support their revenue increases and outperform China counterparts. But Apple has changed its marketing strategies in recent years and started to introduce more China makers into its supply chains, as the US vendor has no longer stuck to top consumer groups for sales of its devices, becoming more concerned about production costs, the sources said.
Apple is obviously looking to reduce the costs of the components in its smartphones, hopefully this will lead to lower prices for the handsets in the future.
