Coronavirus does not concern all Apple suppliers
Sources in the Apple supply chain report that companies such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and United Microelectronics (UMC) have not changed their work activities, but in others there is an impact on production due to measures to counter the new coronavirus.
TSMC the company known for the Ax series chips integrated in the iPhone and which is probably already working on the production of the SoC A14 for the iPhone 12 that will be presented before the end of the year.
The Taiwanese site Digitimes reports that he has spoken with unspecified companies that deal with the design of processors and the latter are more pessimistic about the situation. Some companies have revised downward sales projections, predicting a drop in demand between 5% and 10% for consumers in China.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has feared possible risks for Apple due to the epidemic. As we have already reported here, in the meantime the Casa di Cupertino is thinking of restricting the travel of its staff from California to the Chinese production plants. Cook hinted that the issue involves uncertainties over the next fiscal quarter but reported that alternative sources of supply and contingency plans are ready.
