In a separate 2020 Wall Street Journal Blevins, who is prominent at Apple, told the outlet that he goes under the name “the Blevinator” as he negotiates prices with suppliers to keep costs down.

At the same time that Blevins was fired, Apple announced it will make the iPhone 14 in India, as manufacturers shift production from China amid geopolitical tensions and pandemic restrictions that have disrupted supply chains for many industries. 

A Reuters report in November highlighted that Apple’s dependence on China for its supply chain was not as it used to be. 

The data shows how Apple and its suppliers are diversifying the supply chain. This includes investments in India and Vietnam as well as increased purchases from Taiwan, the United States, and elsewhere. However, academics and analysts agree that China will continue to be a major supplier for many years.

Eli Friedman, an associate professor at Cornell University and labour expert in China, stated that the China supply chain will not disappear overnight.

He said that decoupling is not feasible for these companies for the moment, though he anticipated diversification to accelerate.
