Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company that is headquartered in Cupertino, California, which designs, develops, and sells consumer electronics. Its hardware products include the iPhone smartphone, the iPad tablet computer, the Mac personal computer, the iPod portable media player, the Apple Watch smartwatch, and the Apple TV digital media player.Update Nov 18, 2016:
Nikkei Asian Review reports Apple began actively exploring the possibility of an American-made iPhone. Apple Has Asked Partners to Put Together a 'Made in the USA' Plan. They say Apple approached two Chinese companies that share the role of assembling its iPhones to investigate the possibility of making iPhones in U.S. factories.
According to the report, Pegatron declined to follow through with the request. Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., Ltd , better known as Foxconn, complied but was said to be less than enthusiastic about the idea. Apple represents over half of Foxconn’s sales and the prospect of its customer moving production from China to American factories is something it wouldn’t have been planning for.
Whether losing the assembly contract altogether to U.S. competitors or being forced to invest in manufacturing plants in the U.S. to keep Apple’s business, an American-made iPhone would not be good news for Foxconn.
Even though Foxconn at least entertained Apple’s request, it too eventually came to the same conclusion as Pegatron. A Foxconn source added, making iPhones in the U.S. means the cost will more than double.
Moto X - Motorola Mobility LLC
There are more than 130 million smartphones in use in the USA today and not one of them was assembled here...until now...UPDATE
...The Moto X is one of the more unique smartphones on the market because folks could customize it and it is one of the few constructed in the United States. Soon, however, Motorola won't be assembling devices in the US of A anymore. The Wall Street Journal reported Motorola plans to shutdown its Mobility Factory in Fort Worth, Texas by the end of 2014. A Motorola spokesperson confirmed the news. Currently the factory employs over 700 Americans to produce the Moto X and operate an essential part of the Moto Maker assembly process. However, Motorola says the closure won't affect the availability of the device or its smartphone customization program. After the factory closure, Moto X production will be moved to China and Brazil, as well as other undisclosed locations.
