Exclusive: Apple could make iPhones in US in future
TAIPEI — 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.”
