w00t?, not in the USA? Apple really cares about its homeland and jobs there, and at the same time they shine with “Designed in California”.

Real Patriots, as they love to claim!

Apple never produced iPhone in the US. Neither the iPod. Which production facility would offer them access to thousands of workers in a similar scale?

Well, Yes, most (direct) Apple employees are in the USA, but not the ones that weights more, jobs wise. With 2T$ I think they are able to build a plant there, and also pay decent salaries, but this just proves how greedy Tim Cook is.

Pretty much like any US company of a similar size and nothing out of the ordinary. They need to show growth to their shareholders, one of the joys of stock trading capitalism.

Wait till after the election, if the incumbent get re elected, the tariff will be raised to oversea maufactured phones.
