    Tim Cook say that it is not possible because U.S. workers are not educated to do this type of assembly and no micro assembly plants either. So I think that maybe a mistake. Apple does very little in making it own products other then the .Mac Pro aka trash can PC.

    Perhaps wherever you looked it up doesn't quite have the most correct information?

    used Chipmunk International which has always been accurate in the past

    I have a SIM free iPhone X I bought yesterday that has a serial number that starts with G0. I haven't seen that in an iphone before. i looked it up as well and it does indeed say U.S. If that isn't accurate, I wonder where it was built.

    That is weird

    Maybe it's hand crafted by Jony in Cupertino?

    The retail box will say where it was assembled in the fine print. If it doesn't say USA then you know Chipmunk is wrong.

    Well documented that there are currently no iPhone manufacturers currently in the US. It now seems like that might change, but as of now, there is no way in hell that's made in the US. Anyone, please raise your hand if your iPhone tracking did not originate in China.

    Correct, however, being that Apple warehouse in California, Tennessee, and Pennsylvania are now well stocked up, they will be shipped from the U.S. But they are still made in China.

    Ah, you must have gotten one of the ones I’ve been making in my garage. :D The ones that start with G1 were made in my basement.

    The label on the box your iPhone shipped in tells you where it was assembled.
    That will NOT say "Assembled in USA".
    As has been stated above, no iPhones are assembled in the US.
    Apple has added new plants, or re-organized the plant location codes, or some other change to the location codes.
    Chipmunk (and other sites) have simply not caught up to the changes.
    (So, if the box does not say Assembled in the USA, then you know that Chipmunk is wrong)

    Those warehouses are all owned by Ingram Micro. Ingram Micro is the only company that ships Apple products in the US.
