Apple can reportedly make enough iPhones outside China

Apple can reportedly survive a China ban as Foxconn shifts to India

Hon Hai, better known as Foxconn, is a key manufacturing partner to Apple.

The trade war "will have some impact, but it will be limited", Liu said. Washington is threatening to hit Beijing with new tariffs on about $300 billion worth of Chinese goods including phones and laptops, directly affecting the company's business with a swathe of the world's major electronics brands.

Most iPhones are now produced in China, but Foxconn semiconductor division chief Young Liu apparently told investors Tuesday that 25% of its production capacity is outside the mainland - enough to satisfy the U.S. market.

He also emphasized that Foxconn's investment in Wisconsin was more important than before given the trade war.

Its semiconductor division chief Young Liu said that 25% of the production capacity is positioned outside of China and the company is ready to help Apple since it has enough capacity to meet the demand of the United States market.

Most of Foxconn's factories are located in China, even though the company is headquartered in Taiwan, but in recent years, the tech giant has been making great efforts to expand and diversify its worldwide operations, from Brazil to Turkey, India, and the US.

"Twenty-five per cent of our production capacity is outside of China and we can help Apple respond to its needs in the USA market", said Foxconn's semiconductor division chief Young Liu on Tuesday as reported by Bloomberg, "We have enough capacity to meet Apple's demand".

In his comments to investors, Liu said Apple had not given Hon Hai instructions to move production out of China. If Foxconn freed up non-China production capacity for iPhones, other smartphone clients could find their orders temporarily delayed or sidelined in the short-term, he added.

Foxconn is already under the spotlight for not yet meeting job-creation targets in Wisconsin, an investment cited by U.S. President Donald Trump as proof he was reviving American manufacturing.

Liu was speaking at Foxconn's first investor conference in Taipei, where the company also said it was well positioned to tackle the "increasingly tough" trade war situation with its production lines across 16 countries.

Foxconn has also agreed to build a 13,000-worker facility in Wisconsin in exchange for more than US$4.5 billion in government incentives.
