With many AirPods Pro cases saying 'Assembled in Vietnam,' it appears that Apple has shifted part of its production from China to Vietnam.
Do not be afraid to receive one of these AirPods Pro assembled in Vietnam Far from it, and although it is true that factories in China may have more experience in this work, the products that come from Vietnam and Apple are exactly the same with the same assembly process and same components.
Apple is reportedly shifting some of its AirPods production to Vietnam this quarter. Roughly 30% of the company's classic AirPods will be produced in Vietnam rather than China, the Nikkei Asian Review reported. The move will continue to diversify Apple's supply chain.
Part of his summary includes citing a Wall Street Journal article about Apple boosting production outside China. Kuo believes that the move is possible for AirPods Pro 2 because of the "relatively not complicated supply chain" for the device, plus Vietnam's better "infrastructure and workforce."

Originally, those plans also included the upcoming AirPods 3, but those plans have changed. According to a new report from Nikkei Asia, Apple has had to begin mass producing the third-generation AirPods in China rather than Vietnam because of disruptions related to COVID-19 outbreaks.
TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tweeted that the shift of the AirPods Pro 2 to Vietnam from China is due to a "relatively not complicated supply chain" for the product, as well as Vietnam's better production environment compared to other countries, save for China.
This has been especially difficult in Vietnam due to the lack of engineers able to work on AirPods 3 and other new devices. Following the height of U.S.-China trade tensions two years ago, Apple, Google, and Amazon all initiated moves to shift some production to Vietnam.
The poor often lack production means and cultivated land. They have limited access to the state credit and often access through back credit with very high interest. The households often have many children but few laborers. The poor are disproportionately likely to be from an ethnic minority.
