The Wall Street Journal: Apple wants more iPhone and MacBook components made outside of China
The Wall Street Journal, citing well-informed anonymous sources, reported that Apple wants to increase the production of components for its devices – iPhone and MacBook – outside of China. The company expressed this desire to a number of its contractors.
Sources of The Wall Street Journal say that India and Vietnam are mentioned among the most likely applicants for the expansion of production. The publication notes that Apple’s desire to reduce the production of components in China is caused by strict anti-virus measures, which are introduced by the PRC authorities from time to time, sometimes completely closing entire cities.
Currently, more than 90% of components for the same iPhone, iPad and MacBook are made in China. At the same time, according to analysts cited by The Wall Street Journal, “such a high degree of dependence on one particular country carries potential risks due to the authoritarianism of the communist government in Beijing and its difficult relationship with the United States“.
In April, it became known that about half of Apple’s top 200 suppliers have manufacturing facilities in areas ordered by Chinese authorities to be placed under strict quarantine following a new outbreak of COVID-19. Apple CFO Luca Maestri later said the company could lose between $4 billion and $8 billion in the second quarter due to supply chain disruptions.

The power of a modular laptop. Framework provides kits that allow you to upgrade to the latest Intel CPUs
Modular laptops on the market are a rarity. The Framework model is just one of those. And now it can be upgraded to the latest Intel CPUs.
Earlier this year, the company released an updated Alder Lake laptop, but now the manufacturer has said that owners of the older model will soon be able to buy a kit that will allow them to replace old components with new ones.
The old model was equipped with a previous generation Intel platform, which means that the motherboard also needs to be changed. Kits will cost a minimum of $450 for a Core i5-1240P board. For a fee with a Core i7-1280P, you will have to pay $ 1,050. You can also purchase a set of motherboard with CPU and a new aluminum cover. You will need to pay an extra $90 for the cover.
The kits are already on the site, but for now you can only pre-order.
