Pegatron Suspends Shanghai Production due to COVID Outbreak

Pegatron, one of the major producers of Apple’s iPhone, announced on Tuesday that it had temporarily suspended production at its facility in Shanghai due to the strict COVID-19 lockdown.

With almost 25 million residents, Shanghai remained almost entirely locked down since late March.

Pegatron’s announcement came despite authorities easing some COVID-19 regulations in Shanghai on Tuesday.

“The date of factory resumption is to be advised by the local government,” Pegatron said.

Apple MacBook manufacturer Quanta, and iPad maker Compal Electronics, have also halted production in some cities in China.

Pegatron said it will work with authorities to resume the operations as soon as possible.
