Apple released a public letter to the government stating the latest $200 billion worth of tariffs will ultimately show as a tax on the U.S. based consumers as they are forced to increase the cost of Apple products customers rely on in their daily lives. Earlier with Trump tweeting that solution for Apple is to move production to the US, with Trump campaigning for since he was elected.
To begin the conversation, it’s hard to presume that the tariffs will eventuate even if Trump terms that they would, take place very soon . with the White House suggesting that they are working on feedback and no decision has been originated yet. Secondly, with the tariffs not drastically affecting Apple’s trillion dollar border, this largest product line will affect to appear on Apple Watches, AirPods and HomePods with a Substantial-yes and a cataclysmic-no no.
unclear with what Trump means by saying zero tax it is obvious that Apple has to pay zero import tax if manufacturing is shifted to the U.S. But as Trump dint specify the other ways the tax exemption for Apple is on board. maybe a lot, or a little, a tweet cannot be sought to be an exact signed document and it is n’t the first time that Trump backed away from promises made on Twitter in his term.
Unknown is the fact that any tax reductions would make manufacturing worth the US. Moreover when alleged that making iPhones in the US meant the cost increases more than a double. With Apple requesting manufacturing partners Foxconn and Pegatron to investigate the cost of production facilities in the US, Pegatron replied simply that it isn’t viable and when Foxconn did, they aren’t optimistic about it.
Hard to foresee the where about of Apple beginning its manufacturing in America, if even assumed that they will, it may take years before production starts off.
