The AirPods 3 will arrive in 2021 and will be produced in Vietnam

According to the Nikkei Asian Review, the plan of Apple to release an updated version of the AirPods by the end of the year, was postponed because of the crisis in global health.

This is in line with a recent report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, in which he stated that series production of AirPods and the third generation will begin in the first half of 2021, followed by the serial production of AirPods Pro second generation between the fourth quarter of 2021 and the first quarter of 2022. Kuo also predicts that the over-ear headphones high-end Apple will enter production in mid-2020.

Apple also plans to increase the production of the second generation of AirPods, this time outside of China. About 3 / 4 million units, which represent approximately 30% of the AirPods classic, which will be produced in Vietnam. However, Pro models will still be produced in China.

There are probably three factors at the basis of the decision. In the first place, Apple was already slowly working to become less dependent on China. Society likes to have multiple suppliers and assemblers to reduce the risk and maximize the bargaining power, and the division of production between countries increases both the benefits.

In the second place, the outbreak of coronavirus, which has hit first in China, has highlighted the risks of being overly dependent on a single country.

In the third place, the administration Trump is once again making noise about possible increases in tariffs on products manufactured in China, this time to the desire to “punish” China for what Trump said was poor treatment of the pandemic.

The report states that Apple has also rearranged the order of AirPods for the current quarter.
