Foxconn and Pegatron, Apple's biggest partners in making the iPhone in China, are considering setting up new production facilities in Mexico for obvious reasons.
According to one Publication of El Economista, Foxconn is in the process of designing a new plant in Mexico. The company already has a total of five different factories in the country, but is responsible for the production of TVs and servers.
Thus, the construction of a new factory will be aimed specifically at the iPhone. Interestingly, Apple does not seem to be involved in this new project and the decision starts entirely with Foxconn.
At the same time, Pegatron is reportedly considering a similar move.
Apple itself is trying to reduce its dependence on China, especially after the US embargo on China.
The Cupertino-based company has long been considered a potential target for the Beijing government if the government seeks retaliation from an American company for sanctions faced by the Huawei and TikTok from the US.
