Apple is considering opening a factory in Indonesia

The majority of Apple products are manufactured in China with larger factories opening in India and Vietnam post-pandemic to avoid reliance on a single manufacturing location. The Mac Mini is manufactured in Malaysia. During a visit to Indonesia this week, Apple CEO Tim Cook said Apple is considering expanding the manufacturing of their products in the country.

The desire to expand manufacturing in Indonesia was made after Cook had a meeting with President Joko Widodo. Indonesia is actively attracting foreign investors to make their country a manufacturing hub in the Southeast Asian region. Tesla, for example, is also interested in opening the world's largest battery manufacturing plant in the country.

Eight years ago, Apple invested to open an application development hub in Indonesia. This is because they do not install iPhones in Indonesia which obligates foreign companies to invest in the country before the device can be sold.
