This is the first time that Apple's wireless headset has been produced anywhere other than China.
According to information from the Nikkei Asian Review, Apple will start testing AirPods in Vietnam to diversify production to reduce dependence on China.
It is known that Apple's supply chain partner, GoerTek, will start testing AirPods production at its factory in northern Vietnam from this summer.
Initially, only a small amount of AirPods was produced in Vietnam, although Apple asked all of its component suppliers to support GoerTek. “Suppliers are required to keep prices constant for this trial production phase. However, prices may be changed after production levels rise, "Nikkei said.
It is known that Apple has long placed the production of their EarPods wired headphones in Vietnam. However, to date, wireless headphones AirPods are only manufactured in China by Inventec, Luxshare-ICT and GoerTek suppliers.
However, Apple was forced to diversify its supply chain and expand its production of equipment out of China due to ongoing trade tensions between the US and China. Rising labor costs in China are also a major reason behind this decision. And Cupertino is currently seeking to move at least 15-30% of its equipment outside China.
