At iPhone Life, we rarely delve into politics, but just as iPhones and iPads and Apple Watches are part of our "life" so is the current "crazy season" of politics. While John McCain may have mistakenly said that the iPad and iPhone are made in the U.S., they are merely "Designed by Apple in California" as many of those gadgets say on the back. While Apple's high-end Mac Pro is made in the United States, Apple has said it is impractical to manufacturer their high-volume, low-cost items like iPods, iPhones and even MacBooks domestically. In Tim Cook's interview with Charlie Rose, he said it's not just about low wages, but also the skill set of Chinese workers and the supply of components used to make Apple's products. The Chinese government has placed a high priority on creating a workforce and supply chain that makes it a no-brainer to manufacture in China.
