Tim Cook, Apple's CEO: "it is not true that the iPhone is not produced in the United States"
"It is not true that the iPhone is not produced in the United States of America", these are the words of Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, pronounced during an interview with Kara Swisher of Recode, and Chris Hayes of MSNBC in response to the criticism about the ties of the company with China and other countries.
"We have always produced components here," said Cook. "People look only where the final product is assembled". In a global world, said the CEO of Apple, the production and assembly of the products are steps that need to be carried out in different places. As the same Cook has explained in the past, the key components of the iPhone are manufactured in the United States of America. The display of the iPhone and iPad, produced by the u.s. company Corning, coming from Kentucky. The form Face ID for iPhone X instead of from Texas. Even various chips for Apple devices are products on the territory of the united states.
Cook said that “political pressures” have pushed Apple to create jobs in the USA, because it is something that is already for a long time. "The business should go beyond the simple to create revenue and profits. It should train people".
We know that Apple could be born only in the United States. We know that. This company would not have flourished in any other country in the world. We love this country. We are the patriots. This is our country and I want to create as much work as possible in the United States. We do not need political pressure to do so.
The entire interview with Tim Cook airs on April 6 on MSNBC, in a segment called “Revolution: Apple Changing the World”.
