Apple there is no app for that ability to diverse your manufacturing china has drained and retrained your brain trust until you go belly up and go bust like a rotting corpse.
Apple could do manufacturing in Vietnam. Samsung does that already for some of their phones, like the S10 series.
Don , 19 Jun 2019For them best solution is to come in some European country,like Romania,Serbia,Bulgaria.. Peop... moreIt doesn't matter if those are in Europe. Trump will throw taxes against them too for avoid the manufacture outside of US. And that will even hurt those countries more than China and others, affecting all kind of products not only the phones,like now against China and other countries.
Apple has to location to shift I think might be India or Vietnam same as Samsung.
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2019Why does Apple not move the production in Norway?
Is there any advantage (cost, skill workers, infrastructure, etc) moving iPhone production over there?? Let us know your opinion.
For them best solution is to come in some European country,like Romania,Serbia,Bulgaria.. People in this countries work for 500€ and have educated work force and stable political situation. They are also member of EU except Serbia,which is member of Euroasian union,which is even better,cause can export without tariffs on very big market.
It'll be only a temporal solution, Trump want that them and others come back to manufacture in US, it's in his mind, so after they move their manufacturing elsewere, he'll put new taxes against those countries too. Of course paid by US citizens. Why is Mexico in the list? As if they already doesn't have enough belligerence against them to include them in the list.
"Sources claim that one supplier had spent three to five months assessing one location, just to find out later that there are risks of power outages."
Where this happened? India?
Let's hope a proper full fledged Made in India iPhone is more decently priced

Most people knew this was coming
Chinese fans and Huawei fanboys said Apple would never do this but seems like they were wrong they are willing to do it.
Apple has more money than anyone if anyone can its them.
Hopefully they will rely on China less and others will follow suit.
Wonder where the boss of china will get his ipads and iphones for his family now :D
Even if the production is moved out of China the manufacturer will remain the same. Probably there might be some layoffs or the worker's will be assigned to manufacturer different phones. Since the change is gradual impact might be unnoticed.
