iPhone increased production and the new launch of the Apple’s cheaper phone could be set for disruption over coronavirus in China.

Apple is set to produce 80m iPhones during the first six months of 2020 which could be delayed, according to a report in the Japanese financial newspaper, Nikkei Asian Review on Tuesday.

Due to Chinese authorities placing many cities on lockdown affecting tens of millions due to the spread of coronavirus, this will affect manufacturing of the new iPhone which was due to start mid February.

The financial newspaper reported 65m old phones and 15m new models will face disruption due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

There have been 106 confirmed deaths and more than 4,500 confirmed cases across China.
