The corona virus is to argue that the life-span of 490 people, and the spread of 24,324, at the last count, a number of companies in China, have cut back their operations or closed entirely. It hits the Apple right in the solar plexus, since the company is dependent on contract manufacturers located in China to manufacture many of its products, including the iPhone. The virus had affected some of the company’s China-based supply chain management.

Bloomberg reports today that the Chinese manufacturer of Apple and is based on the best, Foxconn also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co.) resuming the production on February 10.

TF International, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has recently cut its estimate of iPhone shipments for the current quarter was up 10%. To view the calendar in the first quarter of Apple’s fiscal second quarter, Kuo sees the company as to the supply of 36 million to 40 million iPhones. Apple no longer releases the number of phones it ships at the quarterly reports, however, the examiner was of the opinion that the manufacturer has provided 38 million in the previous year, and a calendar for the first quarter of the year. So, for a period of three months from January to March, and he will see that the iPhone shipments are falling as much as 5.3%, or increased by the same percentage.

Foxconn is planning to resume the production schedule at the February 10,

The February 10 date is when production is supposed to invest in Foxconn, it is not written in stone. Some of them are based in the local lockdowns, and the transportation of people and materials, has slowed down tremendously.

Both of which are more than 311 km away from Wuhan, the city in China is considered ground zero for the coronoavirus.

Meanwhile, GF Securities analyst Jeff Pu said that the companies in our supply chain are deeply concerned about the lack of staff. He notes that “The key variable is whether or not the government will push back the time for the resumption of production, even though it is not very likely, in view of the complexity of the organisation of transport for the return of migrant workers.” Apple has more than 10,000 employees directly in China, including those who work at the Apple Store. The companies that make up Apple’s contract manufacturers, and supply chain management in China, and more than 1 million people, the production of components and assembly of Apple’s products.

While it was only a week ago the virus and lead to a delay in the launch of the iPhone, the 9, Foxconn now says that it will be a back-up plan, which is the next model of iPhone to be released on schedule. As we told you during the last days of January, the trial production of the phone has already been launched. The the iPhone 9 will look like the iPhone, 8, to the bottom of the 4.7-inch screen LCD monitor. However, in contrast to the iPhone 8, which is driven by 10nm (A11), Bionic processor, and the iPhone 9 will be equipped with the same 7nm A13 Learning, SoC is found of 2021 at the latest iPhone models. The new device will also be the beneficiary of a 50% hike in its memory of 2gb of RAM to 3GB / s.
