Apple may fall about 6 million units short of its production goal for the premium iPhone 14 Pro models in 2022.
Foxconn's Zhengzhou facility, which produces half of the world's iPhones, once employed 200,000 people.
According to Reuters
The exact size of the shortfall remains unclear. It will likely depend on the manufacturer Foxconn’s ability to hire enough workers for the iPhone assembly line to keep up with production targets.
Apple’s shares were down by 1.87% in pre-market trading on Monday morning following the report.
Apple and Foxconn didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
