In a statement to CNBC, Foxconn says that its main factory in Zhengzhou, the capital of the Henan province, had not been impacted by major flooding in the city, which has taken the lives of twelve people, according to local reports. Foxconn says that it had "activated an emergency response plan for flood control measures in that location" and is actively monitoring the situation.

We can confirm that there has been no direct impact on our facility in that location to date, and we are closely monitoring the situation and will provide any updates as appropriate.

The heavy rainfall which has so far displaced over 100,000 residents of the province is expected to continue until Wednesday evening. Officials in the area have suspended the city's subway network and flights in response. Apple CEO Tim Cook says that Apple will be donating to relief efforts to support first responders.

A boring dystopia indeed. Unprecedented floods, people dying, but at least iPhone production isnt going to be impacted. These articles are so tone deaf.

Before long all those cars will have water intrusion into their axle seals, and transmissions. Seals keep dust out not water, hydrostatic pressure is too great. Too bad SUVs arent a thing there. This is why you don't drive in water deeper than 3 inches with any sedan.

You can bet zero. Why would they?
Cook said Apple is going to donate on Weibo. Apple always donate in big nature disasters.
