Trump’s China tariffs will raise the price of the Apple Watch, HomePod, AirPods, Trackpad, Pencil, adapters, chargers and cords. But not the iPhone.
From the White House:
Apple prices may increase because of the massive Tariffs we may be imposing on China – but there is an easy solution where there would be ZERO tax, and indeed a tax incentive. Make your products in the United States instead of China. Start building new plants now. Exciting! #MAGA

My take: I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: What Donald Trump doesn’t know about Apple’s supply chain could fill a stadium.
