Last month, Apple CEO cook accompanied the president of the United States to visit the Mac Pro production line in Austin,They both spoke highly of the power of American manufacturing。 However, the Mac Pro can be produced in the United States, so the iPhone is unlikely to be made back in the United States, and cook said that there is no substitute for made in China.
Recently, in an interview with foreign media, cook again talked about the issue of "made in the United States vs. made in China". The United States is the birthplace and the largest market of apple, but the iPhone is not produced in the United States. Nearly 200 million iPhones are produced in China's generation factories every year, of which Zhengzhou Foxconn accounts for the vast majority.
There are different people in the United States who want cook to move the iPhone production line back to the United States, but cook has repeatedly said it is impossible, and this attitude was also expressed in recent interviews,Once again, he denied the possibility of transferring the iPhone to us production, saying that made in China is irreplaceable。
It wasn't just Cook when he was CEO. In fact, when Jobs was still in office, the president of the United States asked him if he could transfer iPhone back to production in the United States, and Jobs answered that it was impossible.
