According to Nikkei, it reported Apple has asked major iPhone manufacturer partners, such as Foxconn and Pegatron, to look into possibilities to bring the iPhone assembly supply chain into the United States. bearing in mind that as at today, all iPhones (and almost all Apple products) are manufactured and assembled in China

It further revealed that Foxconn has since then being seriously researching on ways through which iPhone manufacturing wing can be moved to US without actually affecting the company’s sales or profit

Pegatron on the other hand was reported to have declined the request by Apple over cost concerns and was quoted to have said an unavoidable increase in cost of production “more than double” would occur if eventually the company moves

Apple asked its manufacturers to investigate the possibility of moving iPhone production to the US
