Coronavirus isn’t just affecting people, there are economic repercussions felt across the world. The Chinese government has posed a lot of restrictions and thus it is taking a toll on manufacturers. Apple is one of them.

Amongst hundreds of firms, Apple is also one of them who’s stuck between the virus and the government. Its main suppliers won’t be able to function given the scenario and as the only factory working that has just 10% work capacity, the iPhone-maker is eyeing a different path.

If sources are to be believed, Apple is pondering to shift its order to its production facilities in Taiwan. As the virus hasn’t hit the nation, the work is going without any hurdles. Moreover, rumors suggested that the iPhone 9 could see a March launch so Apple is preparing for various plans if things go south. India and Vietnam might gain from the situation but only time will tell.
