Apple called on Taiwan suppliers to comply with China ' s customs regulations to avoid problems

Apple called on its suppliers to comply with the PRC customs regulations when shipping from Taiwan to China to avoid checks, investigations and conflicts with Chinese authorities, and the measure was caused by the growing relationship between Beijing and Taipei, together with Washington.

The U.S.-PRC dialogue became very difficult following the visit of the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, and the Congressional delegation to Taiwan. The producer of the iPhone reminded its partners in the region that Beijing had begun to make sure that Taiwan's parts and components were marked "Taiwan, China" or "China Taipei".

Pegatron, an iPhone assembly company, stated that its factory in mainland China continued to operate in a state-of-the-art manner, with media reporting that the supply of components to the company was delayed due to a check initiated by the Chinese customs authorities; Apple's Taiwanese contractors, especially Foxconn and Pegatron, are now increasing production capacity; another iPhone is expected to be launched in September.
