A company Apple manufacturing partner, Foxconn specifically, has been studying the possibility of moving production of iPhone to the United States.
After speculation that generated the words of Donald Trump, who said that would force Apple to make its "cursed devices" in the United States, companies responsible for manufacture and assemble the iPhone fear having to adapt to relocate its facilities to the United States.
The publication says that Apple has asked Foxconn and Pegatron (both actual providers of the company) to investigate the possibility of manufacturing the iPhone in US territory.
"FOXCONN ACCEPTED THE PETITION, WHILE PEGATRON REFUSED BECAUSE OF THE HIGH COSTS OF THIS PLAN."
Donald Trump, and his wild promises, are shaking the technology sector. The new President of the United States also plans to introduce a rate of 45% on imports from China.

"YOU CAN PUT ALL THE TOOLS IN THE UNITED STATES AND THEY WOULD PROBABLY FIT INTO A ROOM WE'RE SITTING IN. BUT IN CHINA YOU WOULD HAVE SEVERAL SOCCER FIELDS. "
