Foxconn has been given $12 million in government subsidies to avoid mass layoffs.

Is it finally happening?

Either that or they're manufacturing elsewhere. foxconn != apple
>>
>>52265898
It's not just Foxconn, they've reduced orders for other Chinese companies as well.
>>
>>52265898
Apparently the decreases are affecting multiple suppliers, Foxconn just being the biggest among them.
>>
>>52265918
Maybe they're moving production to some other third world shithole. Normally I'd be happy that apple is messing up but I don't think they've had financial or marketing trouble in years.

Ending certain product lines

Moving a lot of production and assembly to USA

I work here

Shh
>>
>>52265933
That's really unlikely, I don't see a reason why they'd suddenly switch away from China where there's companies that have virtually built themselves around manufacturing cheap parts for Apple.
>>

>Moving a lot of production and assembly to USA
So they ARE moving production to some other third world shithole. I told you, you faggots.
>>
>>52265958
>Moving a lot of production and assembly to USA
Confirmed for not working at Apple. They are most certainly not moving iPhone assembly to the US.
>>
>>52265933
Reports also suggest that current supplies of iPhones are piling up at retailers, this isn't simply a readjustment of production lines.

Good thing that's enough to pay for 12 million foxconn employees worth of labour for two years.

It's over.

>>52265898
Apple has used Foxconn for just about everything.
I doubt they can find a cheaper manufacturer to replace them with.

Jobs must be rolling in his grave right now.
>>
>>52265958
Bullshit.

I work in rocket propulsion manufacturing and I'm pretty tied in to the entire US precision machining/CNC/automation industry and know many of the suppliers of Apple's production machinery. Those of us working in this industry would know at a minimum 2 years in advance if Apple was moving/building that kind of infrastructure stateside.
>>
>>52266112
The 6S and 6S Plus were a joke. Force touch was bullshit, literally no reason to upgrade.

Now that apple has a large screen phone, there's nothing left they can do, barring resurrecting jobs.
>>
>>52266112
Oh this. They'll just tout the iphone 7 as revolutionary and a huge jump in performance even when it isn't, give it a new faggy design and sales will go back up.
>>
>>52266138
If we harnessed the energy from how much Jobs is rolling in his grave these days we'd solve the energy crisis.

So how many foxconn suicides is this going to cause? Better get those nets ready, boys!

>>52266145
>rocket propulsion manufacturing
This sounds cool. Where at?
>>
>>52266226
SpaceX
>>
>>52266328
Do you know John Carmack? What car does he drive?
>>
>>52266391
Carmack has never worked at SpaceX.
>>
>>52266145
I don't believe you.
>>
>>52266145
For all the rockets apple is building
>>
>>52266933
That's ok.

My point still stands, no way Apple could shift production/assembly of iPhones at the scale needed without everyone in the industry knowing.
>>
Apple cucks on suicide watch when?

Who are you quoting?
