Major iPhone production facility for Apple has been shaken by violent protests. Numerous Apple employees reportedly fought with security guards at the Foxconn Technology Group plant in China, according to a Bloomberg report. The employees of the Apple plant may be seen shoving with guards who are significantly outnumbered in a number of online videos.
According to the article, tensions arose within the company as a result of the rigorous regulations implemented to contain the Covid epidemic. Several Apple employees are seen encircling and rocking a parked police car in a video. Unpaid wages and concerns about infection spreading are claimed to be the main causes of the violent protests.

The majority of Apple's iPhones are produced by Foxconn, which has over 200,000 employees and ships about 70% of all iPhones worldwide.
Violence at the Zhengzhou factory since the latest lockdown started in October serves as a stark reminder of the rising tension there. Due to dissatisfaction with how the outbreak was handled and inadequate food rations, a large number of employees have left the plant in recent weeks.
According to the report, before anti-riot police arrived on the scene to regain calm, some workers were injured during the protests. Foxconn, the company that makes Apple iPhones, has not yet made an official statement regarding the incident.
