As Apple tries to escape tariffs and the trade war, it is moving production out of China—but not to the U.S. Here’s how the tech giant has become so reliant on a global supply chain. Video: George Downs and Ksenia Shaikhutdinova.

    does anyone think Chinese workers get paid as much as Americans? i guess that’s the answer.

    Because Americans don’t like apples.

    It would be great if they bring back jobs to America specifically in poor rural areas (appalachia, deep south, rust belt, the south west)

    It would be interesting to see how costs would stack up.
    Besides, I didn't expect this the to be the core argument. Apple is not the kind of company that needs exposure to thousands of different manufacturers, because they don't produce thousands of different products, but more like 16 and a few accessories.

    Making apple products in US will still be costlier than apple product after paying for tarrifs.

    Apple products are manufactured in China, but the software and other third-party applications and services are made here in America.

    America should make apple products in America only.
    China supports terrisom and should be excluded from trade as possible.Like India standard making its products under Make In India program and every country should make there things at their own country,its beneficial for them only. Still they can do trade

    Steve Jobs Sa’id those jobs are not moving back Co’s he was a visionary. Tim Cook ignored that and brought part of it back and then realized what he did not foresee and have ignored (Since he is not a visionary). That’s the difference between a true visionary and someone who only talks to please people without proper insight.

    If Apple products were made in the USA, apple would plummet just due to costs that the consumers would not pay. Imagine paying even more for an overpriced product. And isn't America a capitalist country? It sounds like the President is implementing big government tactics here… how ironic.

    Crony capitalism is what America's getting from Trump's trade policy experimentalism.

    As much as its okay to say X as X and not 10 when talking generally, when facts and figures are being discussed better to stick to the official product names.

    Dear Mr. Trump. I respect You as a person, but your decision about black listing Huawei is just stupid. You have NO PROOF that the're using their deices to spy on people. Also isn't Google kinda doing that?

    Components of Apple products are made in US. Assembly isn’t considered a high value task.

    Trump administration should stimulate the manufacturing base in the u.s and change federal employment policy in terms of minimum wage and benefits (high benefits, low wage mix) and build factories near neighborhoods but regardless, factory towns have never been quite favorable for the u.s ergo meth and opiod crisis…but im sure there are ppl much smartes than me who can figure this out…because this can be a great case study for my country of South Africa 🇿🇦
