Things are changing rapidly post-Trump win in US elections. Trump has plans to hurt china in all possible ways and this news from Apple would make him happy.

According to reports from Nikkei, Apple has asked its manufacturers Foxconn and Pegatron to explore manufacturing units in US to which Pegatron is reluctant fearing to higher production costs in the US. But Foxconn is putting a weight to the Apple's idea and is exploring the chances.

Apple procures the iPhone parts from all over the world but manufactures the phone in china due to lesser production cost in that country.

Meanwhile, china is preparing to react to the US idea to ban Chinese trade in all possible ways like shifting the orders on Boeing to Airbus, halting the exports of Soyabean and Maize to US, 



According to a research company IHS Markit, the production of a iPhone 7 would cost Apple $225 and its selling price is $649. Now we have to wait and see if the decision is put forth, the price will be hiked or not
