MacBook Pro supplier moves factory to combat supply chain problems

Covid-19 lockdowns in and around Shanghai have severely impacted MacBook Pro production, to the point that 14-inch and 16-inch versions have been delayed until August.

In response, Quanta Computer — the sole supplier of high-end MacBook Pro models — is considering moving production through MacRumors to another location, DigiTimes said. One of those locations under investigation is the Chongqing plant, which is currently unaffected by the lockdown and would significantly reduce lead times.
