Apple is expected to produce its anticipated over-ear headphones in Vietnam, according to a Tuesday report by The Information.

It would be the first time Apple has manufactured a new product in Vietnam as U.S.-China trade tensions run high during the coronavirus pandemic, according to The Information.
