    Will it be made of cheese?

    That's if Foxconn actually builds the plant. They previously announced plans to build plants in Pennsylvania, Brazil, Indonesia, and Vietnam. None of them were built.

    The person reporting this news (in the link) doesn't exactly have a stellar reputation for accuracy, either.

    Mind that any new factory/plant will be as automated as possible. It would be interesting to see how many jobs it might actually create.

    If Cheeto says its going to be built there, that means its not going to be built there.

    The announcement from July 2017 claims 3,000 jobs as a result of the Wisconsin plant.

    And, how much will we have to pay for this?
    I don’t think shipping it back and forth the Pacific is cost effective. All the customs brokers fee, tariffs, transportation costs, and labor adds up.

    Sounds like part will be built locally (maybe screens) then shipped overseas and then shipped back. Doesn't sound very cost efficient to me.

    Isn't Foxconn the company that promised but never came through?

    That is what it sounded like to me also. I guess we can expect iPhone price increases if they do something like that?

    I'll gladly pay more for an iPhone if they bring it all back home.

    If they repeal right-to-work in Wisconsin and restore "closed shop", watch any possibility of these iPhones being built move to North Carolina, or perhaps stay in East Asia.

    iPhone X sales must be disappointing. I actually like the phone and I'm hard on apple

    Maybe they can lower the price. People would buy it.
