you imply that they moved 100% of the production outside of China, that is just not true.

Not only the major production volume is chinese, but the 'production' done in other countries such as Brazil and India, is only the assembly.

TLDR: apple products are still chinese.

Well son of a bitch... this is concerning. Looks like it’s time to start my local manufacturing plant.

Edit: I did more research. 380 of 809 production facilities are in China but Apple is trying to further distance themselves from China because of Covid and Trumps tarrifs. Another win for the Carrot....fuck China.

My phone's origin shipping point was Zhengzhou, unfortunately. I do agree that it is a win to have Apple pull out as much manufacturing from China as possible, though.

But LOOK at the CAMERA. IT DOES SUPER HD ULTRA HI RES 4K BLA BLA. LOOK AT THE CAMERA! You need to buy a new charger tho, it's not in the box.

They could have easily used the USB-C port for charging, then your existing chargers and fast chargers would have worked, and that would have been a benefit. But no lets make everyone buy new shit.

Went from 11 pro max to 12 pro; ended up returning the 12pro and going to wait for the 12 pro max. The design is fantastic and the blue color looks great, but the going down to the normal size wasnt as easy as I thought it would be, it really was hurting my eyes.

Just upgraded my dad from an iPhone 8 to 12 Pro. Mine is preparing to ship and I’ll be making the same upgrade soon.

I am curious what your thoughts are on the camera upgrade. The base 12 is leagues ahead of the 8. It's quite incredible. Night mode especially.

Why are you even posting in this thread if you're here to dump on iPhone like an Android shill from 2012?

Sorry to bump this but every time I plug my iPhone 12 Pro to charge, it takes a second or two to recognise it is charging. Is this normal? The last iPhone I had was the X years ago and I don't remember this happening with that.
