Apple turned to a Chinese manufacturer to accelerate production of AirPods Pro and AirPods amid rising demand. This comes at a time when US President Donald Trump is preparing to impose more duties on Chinese imports. The Cupertino-headquarters firm has sent all its manufacturers and providers to actually ramp up production of wireless headphones, including doubling the Pro’s production, according to a Nikkei Asian Review report on Wednesday.
IPhone Maker’s manufacturing partner for AirPods Pro is Luxshare-ICT, which has two plants in China.
“There is further evidence of Apple’s move that Chinese companies, contrary to Washington’s desire to enhance their technological capabilities, can meet sudden demands for additional production while maintaining stringent quality control. It also suggests That Apple’s sales of “diamonds”, which already account for 45% of the wireless earbuds market, continues to boom, “Nikkei Asian Review wrote.
Apple’s fastest growing products include wireless earbuds. According to industry analysts, according to GSMArena, 200 million units can be sold annually and by 2020 the number could reach 80 million.
