Apple suppliers will ramp up Apple Watch production in Vietnam ahead of the Series 8 launch. Earlier last week, a report from Nikkei Asia claimed that Apple was in talks to manufacture the Apple Watch and MacBook models in Vietnam for the first time.

Apple Watch assembled in Vietnam will be increased

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has now revealed that Vietnam is responsible for the manufacturing and shipment units of these products. Still, Apple's suppliers in Vietnam are expected to ramp up production of the Apple Watch ahead of the Series 8 launch.

As detailed by Kuo on his Twitter account, Luxshare ICT, one of Apple's biggest suppliers, already has production lines in China and Vietnam. And according to analysts, some Apple Watch Series 7 units have been shipping from Vietnam for some time.

According to analysts, with the launch of Apple Watch Series 8 this autumn, the proportion of Apple Watch models assembled in Vietnam will increase to 70 percent. Among Apple's Chinese suppliers, Luxshare is the leader in manufacturing production lines outside of China.

In the long term, moving Apple Watch production from China to Vietnam will help Apple protect itself from "global trends." Recently, Kuo also revealed that Apple wants to start production of at least one model of the iPhone 14 lineup simultaneously in India along with China.

Both the Apple Watch Series 8 and iPhone 14 are expected to be officially announced at a media event on September 7.
