iPhone City Restores 90 Per Cent Capacity After COVID-19 Crisis Subsides

The largest iPhone manufacturing facility in the world has reached around 90% of its planned peak capacity, indicating that Foxconn Technology Group, Apple Inc.'s primary supplier, has enough workers despite a Covid revival and recent staff instability.

According to Vic Wang, a senior executive at Foxconn, the company's plant in Zhengzhou, a city in central China, now employs some 200,000 people.

Based on prior reports, that is the typical staffing level.

The spokesman said as of December 30, the plant was shipping at 90% of the peak capacity anticipated at the beginning of the previous year.

The factory's quick recovery augurs well for the creation of Apple's flagship item in the lead-up to the busy Lunar New Year buying season.

A widespread Covid uprising following Beijing's unexpected removal of the majority of Covid Zero-era restraints had dimmed the outlook for producers like Foxconn, which depend on armies of workers to keep factories running smoothly.

The newest outbreak came after weeks of unrest at the iPhone City factory in Zhengzhou, which manufactures the vast majority of expensive iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max smartphones.

In November, a nationwide movement against harsh Covid limits saw thousands of workers flee or stage protests.

Last month, Foxconn lifted the majority of these restrictions and increased incentives for both new hires and current staff.

Concerns about the production of the iPhone over the crucial holiday season were sparked by that unusual disruption. 

BloombergNews disclosed that Apple once faced a manufacturing loss of around 6 million iPhones as a result of the disruption.
