Apple’s Partners Quicken Shift From China as Trade Tensions Rise – BloombergWhat happened: Taiwanese iPhone supplier Foxconn announced over the weekend that it is investing more than $200 million in India and Vietnam as it shifts more of its output to Southeast Asia.Foxconn’s smaller rival Pegatron Corp. also announced on Sunday that it has moved part of its manufacturing of networking gear to Indonesia and is now looking to expand its production base to Vietnam and India.Why it’s important: Taiwanese electronics manufacturers, which are responsible for making a large portion of the world’s electronics, have been shifting production bases outside of China and into other countries as US tariffs on Chinese imports escalate.Many of these companies are turning to countries in Southeast Asia to decrease their dependence on China.The tension between the world’s two largest economies is a delicate situation, especially since a new round of trade talks is scheduled at the end of the month.

After failing to meet its own shipping timeline in 2018, Apple is now thought to have two manufacturers ramping up production of its AirPower wireless charging pad, according to a Hong Kong-based website that specializes in device charging news.As first reported by MacRumors, the website ChargerLAB tweeted out this morning that it had "just learned from credible source in supply chain" that Chinese manufacturer Luxshare Precision has begun manufacturing the AirPower multi-device wireless charger.ChargerLAB followed its initial tweet with another claiming a second Apple supplier, Pegatron, will begin manufacturing AirPower chargers on Jan. 21.ChargerLab cited a Pegatron employee who said AirPower will have three layers of copper wireless charging coils, in an "8-7-7" configuration from bottom to top, which will enable it to charge an an iPhone 8 or iPhone X, an Apple Watch Series 3 or 4 and AirPods via the charging case.If ChargerLAB's latest tweets prove correct, are there still users prepared to spend top dollar for an Apple-stamped wireless charger?"Apple makes a ton of money on accessories, so anything it can do to offer popular accessories that it can sell is a good thing," Gold said via email.
Apple has further slashed iPhone production in the face of underwhelming sales, reports from suppliers claim, in a leak likely to do further damage to the Cupertino firm’s share price.The company surprised the market last week with the admission that it would miss its latest revenue forecasts, blaming tough economic conditions in China and lower than expected iPhone sales as contributing to the shortfall.While Apple execs remained upbeat about the company’s performance – and indeed $84bn in revenues for the last three months of 2018 are hardly underwhelming, even if they’re as much as $9bn less than the top end of Apple’s previous guidance – the news didn’t come as a huge surprise.Speculation about iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR sales failing to catch alight quite as the company was hoping have been circulating for months now.Indeed claims out of the supply chain of a production adjustment back in November suggested demand wasn’t living up to Apple’s expectations.Then, it was reported that the company had notified its key partners – including Foxconn and Pegatron – that they would no longer be increasing iPhone XR production as initially expected.
Intel announced a major rethink of its chip design back in December, just before it finally delivers 10nm chips for PCs and laptops.At CES 2019 today, Intel is demonstrating its first Ice Lake 10nm processor that’s based on its new Sunny Cove microarchitecture.Intel is building in Thunderbolt 3, Wi-Fi 6, and DL Boost (deep learning boost) into these Ice Lake chips for laptops and PCs to take advantage of.Intel is now promising that PC makers will have devices with Ice Lake processors on shelves by the end of 2019.At its CES keynote today, Intel demonstrated ODM systems from Pegatron and Wistron, and Dell even joined Intel on stage to show off an Ice Lake-powered XPS laptop that will be available later this year.Dell didn’t show the device powered on, but it appeared to be a 2-in-1 device that looked similar to the XPS 13.
Although the legal battle between Apple and Qualcomm took an unexpectedly negative turn on Monday when China ordered a ban on multiple Qualcomm patent-infringing iPhone models, Apple is reportedly working on two strategies to skirt the ban — one in iPhone hardware, and one in iOS software.On the hardware side, Apple is considering increasing production at Pegatron, which the Nikkei Asian Review reports is the only iPhone contract manufacturer that paid Qualcomm a licensing fee for the disputed technologies.As a licensee, Pegatron would be exempt from China’s ban, enabling it to supply iPhone models for sale within the country.Of the currently-banned iPhones, Apple is only actively marketing four: the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus.Older iPhone 6S models subject to the ban were already discontinued along with the newer iPhone X, though that model is said to have resumed production to supply unspecified price-sensitive markets.Even so, unsold inventory of each model could still be circulating throughout the region and country.
Apple suppliers to consider moving China iPhone output if tariffs hit 25% – BloombergWhat happened: Apple suppliers in China will consider shifting production out of the country if US tariffs reach 25%.The American tech giant and its partners are assessing their supply chains in the US and China amid tensions between the two countries.A 10% tariff could result in an earnings-per-share (EPS) decline of $1 for Apple if all its hardware in the US is subject to the levy and the company absorbs the costs.However, a 25% tariff would result in an EPS decline of $2.50.Why it’s important: iPhones have so far remained unaffected by the US-China trade war.
Apple told its main phone assemblers, Foxconn and Pegatron, to stop plans for additional iPhone XR production lines, a report said Monday.The order to the two Taiwanese companies suggests that demand for cheapest of the 2018 iPhones hasn't lived up to Apple's expectations, according to Nikkei, which cited anonymous sources."For the Foxconn side, it first prepared nearly 60 assembly lines for Apple's XR model, but recently uses only around 45 production lines as its top customer said it does not need to manufacture that many by now," a source told the Japanese financial paper.That'd mean the company would make around 100,000 fewer XRs, the report noted, while a source within Pegatron said "XR production is not reaching its maximum capacity now."Apple reportedly asked smaller Taiwanese assembler Wistron to prepare for rush orders, but it won't be getting XR orders this holiday season.However, Apple has ordered around 5 million more iPhone 8 models (mostly made by Pegatron) and iPhone 8 Plus models (primarily from Foxconn), bringing the order for those to 25 million, the report said.
Just before Apple’s September launch of the iPhone XS, pundits recommended that potential customers wait until the iPhone XR arrived in October to pick a phone — a suggestion that could have boosted sales of the less expensive model.But a new Nikkei Asian Review report suggests the XR is instead seeing “disappointing demand,” leading Apple to scuttle plans to increase XR production.The surprising reason: Users are gravitating towards the more affordable iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.According to the report, Apple’s key manufacturing partners Foxconn, Pegatron, and Wistron were all prepared to produce plenty of iPhone XR units for the typically blockbuster holiday season.However, Foxconn was only running 45 of 60 total production lines created for the XR, Pegatron was similarly below peak capacity, and Wistron was on standby for “rush orders.” Nikkei says Foxconn and Pegatron were signaled to halt plans to increase XR production, and supply chain sources indicate that Wistron won’t receive XR orders during the holidays.Instead, Foxconn and Pegatron are said to be receiving 25 percent higher orders for iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus phones, adding around five million additional units to Apple’s prior ordering plans.

Reports suggest that Google will release a smart display later this year.The company has reportedly set lofty sales targets for the device.Lenovo released the first smart display using Google’s Android Things last month.Google is set to release a smart display later this year, according to the Nikkei Asian Review (via9to5Google).The publication’s sources suggest that the speaker will be made by Pegatron, a Taiwanese company that also assembles iPhones.Should the rumors be true, the device would likely run Google’s Android Things operating system and line up alongside other Google-made products, such as Pixel smartphones and Google Home speakers.
Google’s ostensible answer to Amazon’s screen-touting Echo Show and Amazon Echo Spot launched earlier this year: smart displays, Android Things-powered devices made by third-party partners like Lenovo, LG, Sony, JBL, and imbued with Google Assistant capabilities.(We reviewed the first, the Lenovo Smart Display, in July.)Google will launch a “smart speaker equipped with a display” in time for this year’s holiday season, industry sources told Nikkei.According to 9to5Google, the firm’s first smart display will sport a front-facing camera, two microphones, a screen “inline or larger” than the Lenovo Smart Display’s 10-inch LCD panel, and potentially a battery.It’ll reportedly support the standard array of Google Assistant commands, such as “play a YouTube video” or “shuffle my music,” and will be fabricated in Taiwan by Pegatron, one of Apple’s manufacturing partners.Details are otherwise scarce right now, but Nikkei said that Google has ambitious rollout goals for the upcoming speaker, with plans to ship “some [three] million units” in the months following its unveiling.
Another report has surfaced, this time from DigiTimes, detailing an ARM-based MacBook product being in the works at Taiwanese manufacturer Pegatron.The outlet’s sources name-dropped the same ‘Star’ codename and ‘N84’ series number first hinted at by 9to5Mac sources a few days previously.Pegatron declined to comment directly for DigiTimes, which doesn't come as much of a surprise, considering the secrecy that surrounds the creation these types of products.The exact language of DigiTimes’s report could be of note regarding when we expect to see this device, however."Pegatron is likely to land orders from Apple," the report reads.This implies a timetable in which the manufacturer has yet to even begin production, and that the deal is still underway.
