Quoting from the stock exchange file, Nikki Asia Reports indicate that Pegatron, one of Apple’s major iPhone suppliers after Foxconn, has halted iPhone production at its facilities in Shanghai and Kunshan. The two sites are the only Pegatron production sites that manufacture iPhones, with the supplier responsible for 20-30% of all iPhones manufactured, the report added.

Another Apple supplier, Quanta, which is responsible for the production of the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, revealed that production has been suspended in Shanghai since the beginning of the month. Dozens of other suppliers, directly and indirectly part of Apple’s supply chain, are also seeing operational disruptions.

Apple has dealt with a restricted supply chain for some time now, with product availability and supply fluctuations over the course of several months. Apple will report second-quarter earnings on April 28 as company executives are likely to provide some context on how the supply chain is performing.
