Apple could make iPhones in US in future: sources

iPhones might one day soon carry "Made in America" labels.

Key Apple assembler Hon Hai Precision Industry, also known as Foxconn Technology Group, has been studying the possibility of moving iPhone production to the U.S., sources told the Nikkei Asian Review.

"Apple asked both Foxconn and Pegatron, the two iPhone assemblers, in June to look into making iPhones in the U.S.," a source said. "Foxconn complied, while Pegatron declined to formulate such a plan due to cost concerns."

Foxconn, based in the gritty, industrial Tucheng district in suburban Taipei, and its smaller Taiwanese rival churn out more than 200 million iPhones annually from their massive Chinese campuses.

Another source said that while Foxconn had been working on the request from Apple Inc., its biggest customer that accounts for more than 50% of its sales, Chairman Terry Gou had been less enthusiastic due to an inevitable rise in production costs.

"Making iPhones in the U.S. means the cost will more than double," the source said.

The person added that one view among the Apple supply chain in Taiwan is that U.S. President-elect Donald Trump may push the Cupertino, California-based tech titan to make a certain number of iPhone components at home.

That would help American jobs greatly! Thank you Mr. Trump! This will put more Americans in good paying jobs and broaden our tax base!

They could also make their employees dye their hair blue in the future. The last thing Apple wants is for iPhone prices to double, like the article says would happen. The only way that Foxconn moves production here is if Trump inflicts massive artificial controls on it. And if that's the case that's the end of the iPhone.

Apple must be open to the move or this article wouldn't exist. Perhaps their profit margins will drop, but I am wondering if there will be a "Buy American Movement" that will take place when Trump is president.

That's not true at all. Anybody can write an article about anything. Apple asked 2 companies to see what would happen if they moved production to the U.S., and they found that iPhone prices would shoot up to over $1000. That's news. The writer saying that glorious leader Trump has forced them to consider moving production to the U.S., that's opinion.

AWhat is the first step into coming back to America...? Investigate what is involved and what the bottom line is. They are announcing that Step one is now in practice. Good!

What is more likely to happen:

Trump inflicts mass tariffs on overseas production, the price of the iPhone shoots up to $900 or so, cheaper than if production moved to the U.S., and Trump voters stop being able to afford iPhones. If they even could in the first place.

If the corporate tax gets lowered to 15% then I think you will see many companies bringing business back to America.

According to research company IHS Markit, it costs about $225 for Apple to make an iPhone 7 with a 32GB memory, while the unsubsidized price for such a handset is $649.
That price of $649 is unsubsidized. Not $1000.00.

The fact that they are investigating it is based on fact.

That's the cost to produce it. Not the price to sell it. To buy the cheapest iPhone 7 new without a plan right now is $750. Now double that price. That's what you voted for.

Some have some haven't. Trump would have let the American auto-industry vanish. Do those count?
