Apple’s U.S.-based engineering team is reportedly “scrambling” to prevent delays of the company’s rumored 5G iPhones, which are expected to debut this fall.

While COVID-19 has shaken up the entire tech industry, travel bans and work-from-home mandates have hit Apple’s engineering and prototyping processes particularly hard. A bulk of the company’s supply partners, including primary manufacturer Foxconn, are located in China.

Typically, Apple staffers would be traveling to China at around this time to verify portions of the iPhone assembly and engineering processes. Unable to do that, Apple engineers have take to using video calls to direct their Chinese colleagues through iPhone prototype assembly, according to a new report by The Wall Street Journal.
