Foxconn, the world’s largest contract electronics maker, on Monday reported a sharp drop in financials in November as the company battled the Covid outbreak and worker unrest at the world’s largest iPhone factory.

Foxconn, also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co, said last month’s revenue was about $18.05 billion, down 29% from October and more than 11% down from November 2021.

Foxconn said the drop was due to “production is gradually moving into the off-peak season, and part of the supply has been affected by the epidemic in Zhengzhou.” The company did not provide other details.

In late October, a Covid outbreak occurred at a factory in Zhengzhou, and Foxconn tried to bring it under control by isolating employees at the factory. Many workers spontaneously left the factory shortly after the outbreak began.

In November, the employees vented their dissatisfaction with the delayed payment of bonuses, clashes with the security service began. Foxconn apologized for the “technical error” and also began paying compensation to those who go home and those who stay.

Foxconn did not mention worker unrest in its November earnings report, but said the Covid outbreak was under control.

According to the latest data, the Zhengzhou plant will finally resume production and reach full capacity from around the end of December this year to early January next year.

Counterpoint analysts assessed the Chinese market based on the results of the last quarter and the entire 2022. In the fourth quarter, Apple was the undisputed leader, as well as in the global market, thanks to the new iPhones. The company occupied 23.7% of the market against 17.2% of the nearest competitor. At the same time, Apple’s sales, like almost everyone else’s, sank. Only Huawei stands out here, having managed to increase supplies by 15%.

At the end of the year, Apple overtook Oppo and took second place with an 18% share. The leader represented by Vivo occupies 19.2%, that is, the gap is small. At the same time, Apple’s share has grown from 16% in 2021, while Vivo’s share has fallen from 21.5%. If the trend continues, Apple may well take the lead this year.

How much faster is Mac than iPhone All current Apple

The MacWorld resource decided to compare all the current Apple M and Apple A platforms in one big test.

Unfortunately, there are only results in Geekbench, albeit including the GPU. These results do not always correspond to the alignment of forces in real tasks, but at least we have a comparison of two dozen SoCs.

As you can see, the difference in single-threaded performance is very small, even when comparing the 2020 A14 Bionic to the latest M2 Pro/Max. Multi-threaded mode puts everything in its place. The undisputed leader remains the M1 Ultra, as it contains a 20-core CPU. The base M2 Pro with a 10-core CPU performs almost on par with the M1 Max, and all other platforms are already far behind. It is immediately clear at the same time that there is actually quite a big difference between the SoC for the iPhone and for the Mac, although the A16 Bionic is still not catastrophically behind the base M1.

As for the GPU, the difference between the platforms is even greater, which is logical, given the difference in the number of GPU cores. Here, too, the M1 Ultra in the top version has no competitors, although the M2 Max with a 38-core GPU outperforms the base M1 Ultra with a 48-core GPU. It should also be noted that the M1 Max in any configuration is faster than the M2 Pro. The result of the M2 in the iPad Pro also looks interesting, where the GPU is not much slower than in the base M2 Pro.
