It said that there are four production lines in the region producing displays for hardware devices – two lines producing LCD screens, and two producing AMOLED screens.

Apple did not respond to a request for comment.

A record-setting heatwave in Sichuan province has prompted authorities to implement power rationing in several cities, forcing many companies to cut production.

On Tuesday, Japanese media outlet Kyodo reported that Toyota had suspended production at its plant in Sichuan.

Chemical producer Sichuan Xinjinlu and mining company Sichuan Hongda also announced that some units in the region would suspend production.

On Monday, Apple supplier Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd. declined to confirm the status of its operations in Sichuan, but a spokesman said the impact of the power shortage was “not big”.
