Here's How Much Money Apple Would Lose by Manufacturing the iPhone in the U.S.

April 24, 2012
Apple has come under heavy criticism in recent months for outsourcing its production line to China, but manufacturing Apple products in the U.S. would take a significant chunk out of Apple's profits.

The Centre for Research on Socio-Cultural Change, a research group at the University of Manchester, estimates that Apple's gross profits for the iPhone would drop by about a third if the company manufactured the product in the U.S. instead of China.

Apple currently makes a profit of $452 on each iPhone (a gross profit of 71.9%)
