Apple could manufacture iPhones in United States in future with “Made in America” Labels

A newly elected U.S. President Donald Trump repeatedly said during his campaign that Apple should manufacture its own products in United States of America with “Made in America” Labels and give employments to American peoples. Apple has been manufacturing it’s all Apple products in China a years ago. So it’s a big changeling to Apple in the mobile market to stand up with other smartphones like Androids and other as manufacturing iPhones in the United States may rapidly doubles the iPhone cost as compare to cost of China.

Beside that Japanese Nikkei reports that  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.
 “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.”

The source also says that "Making iPhones in the U.S. means the cost will more than double.
Apple's Chief Executive Tim Cook told CBS' 60 Minutes program in December 2015 that America simply did not have enough skilled workers for the production of iPhones.

An industry executive familiar with the iPhone production process also said it would be difficult to produce the device in large quantities in the U.S.

"To make iPhones, there will need to be a cluster of suppliers in the same place, which the U.S. does not have at the moment," the executive said. "Even if Trump imposes a 45% tariff, it is still possible that manufacturers will decide to continue production overseas as long as the costs together with the tariffs are lower than the amount they need to spend on building and running production lines in the U.S."

Another industry source said: "It is not easy to make iPhones in America, unless the U.S. government subsidizes local companies for producing domestically."
