Reuters reveals iPhone output could be hit by China virus

Reuters exclusively reported that Apple supplier Foxconn could see a “big” production impact and shipments to customers face disruption if a Chinese factory halt due to the coronavirus outbreak extends into a second week. Foxconn, which makes smartphones for Apple and other brands, has halted “almost all” of its production in China after companies were told to shut until at least Feb. 10. An extension of the stoppage could disrupt shipments to clients including Apple.
