In a few years, we could see iPhone production move from China to the United States.
That's according to a report in the Nikkei Asian Review, which says that Apple might migrate its iPhone manufacturing operations to the US.
Apple has reportedly asked its manufacturer, Foxconn, to study the possibility of assembling its devices in the US instead of China in June.
While Apple boasts that its products are designed in the U.S., the company has received sharp criticism for manufacturing in China.
Foxconn chairman Terry Gou is expectedly not too enthusiastic about the prospect of moving the assembly lines to the U.S.
And he says that building the iPhones in the U.S. would "more than double" the cost.
There's no indication of what has caused these conversations to happen, but President-elect Donald Trump has made numerous comments pushing Apple to build its popular devices in the US.
In previous instances, Apple CEO Tim Cook has defended his manufacturing choices by saying that the U.S. ,"over time, began to stop having as many vocational kinds of skills."
"China put an enormous focus on manufacturing," he added.
It's no secret that wages for assembly line workers in China are much lower.
