By now, you’ve probably used an iPhone at least once, if not owned one. Have you ever wondered how this phone, that regularly locks horns with some of the best Android devices out there, is brought to life? Here’s what you should know.
Most of the work done to build an Apple iPhone is done in Asia. Though Apple CEO Tim Cook has promised to bring back the manufacturing of products to the United States of America to generate jobs, the company still sources its components from Taiwanese vendors. From them all, 85% Apple iPhones are assembled in the Chinese factory, Foxconn.
While the A6 chip, the audio chip, the controller chip, the Gorilla Glass and a few more components are manufactured in the US, the rest is all sourced from overseas. Also, the LCD panels, the batteries, DRAM and Flash Memory of the iPhone are sourced from Asian countries.
With this, you can now stop complaining about how terrible Chinese-made products are and realize just how Asian your iPhone is!
