Apple reportedly has asked its iPhone assemblers to consider moving production of the smartphone to the United States, the Nikkei Asian Review reported.
"Apple asked both Foxconn and Pegatron, the two iPhone assemblers, in June to look into making iPhones in the U.S.," the Nikkei Asian Review reported, citing a source.
"Foxconn complied, while Pegatron declined to formulate such a plan due to cost concerns," the report said. Taiwan-based Foxconn and Pegatron assemble iPhones in China.
