Anonymous, 15 May 2020Consequence: Apple raises prices even more, later android brands will do it as well. And people still do not understand that they are the driving power over the companies and not vice-versa. Just do not buy any phone over 800-1000 $/€/£ and you'll see how these companies will low their prices.. Of course I am talking about mases and not only me and you..
That's totally fine, just register & move your firm somewhere else out of US.

Once Foxconn says they can move their factories to Vietnam. oompa loompa will say here is your TAX relief Apple.

And the sale would be pretty low. That would meant that even the current engineers and developers, managers in US would have no job...
That is a very drastic measure put forward by the President. For that reason, the anticipated iPhone 12 could go for as high as $3000!

Basically to remove all reliance on fresh technology and become self sustainability.
China is aiming not to get stuck in “Middle income Trap” (3000-12000 GDP per capita) that so many countries go stuck ex., Brazil, Mexico.
So yeah Trump in one way helping accelerate Chineseindigenous manufacturing push.
Remember how many conspiracy theorist here were claiming Apple is the one behind this? LOL.
And who has the last laugh? Samsung.
Samsung literally now has no competition in the US market for premium Android, especially for brand marketshare.

YESSS, support Trump. I don't support China. Even iphone higher price, I still buy it.
Sad that apple is so greedy, and cannot see after all the billions they make that us workers need jobs also.

Can't wait for 2x and higher prices! Anyone want the iPhone SE for $1500?
Of course that will bring Apple back on shore.
This is a company that pays 0% taxes around the world.
Apple can afford to pay the US import tariff & still make profit by manufacturing in 3rd countries(low wages and closer to supply chain). They sell their products all over the world.
"Made in US" will also increase prices for non-US markets where they will compete with cheaper made products.
I can see an iPhone SE 2021 at $1k for Chinese consumers. :-)
I feel bad for chinese labor, they do massive hardwork for a few bucks. Unfair, if China cares about the people, they should increase minimum wage, and manufacters can cut it from their profit.
