Apple says new China tariffs will make Apple Watch, AirPods costlier


"As we said last month, it would not be profitable to build the Focus Active in the USA given an expected annual sales volume of fewer than 50,000 units and its competitive segment", the company said in a statement emailed to NPR.

The statement came after Trump tweeted about an article from August 31, when Ford announced that it was canceling plans to make the Focus Active, a compact crossover, in China and ship them to the United States.

Ford says it has no plans to move production of a small auto from China to the United States despite President Donald Trump's enthusiastic tweet Sunday.

Kristin Dziczek of the Center of Automotive Research says there's simply no motivation for Ford to build the Focus Active in the U.S now.

But despite Trump's claims, Ford insisted that this was not the case and that the Focus hatchback will not be built in the United States. He added, "Ford is proud to employ more US hourly workers and build more vehicles in the USA than any other automaker".

Mohan also predicted that Apple would need to raise prices by 8 percent if it shifted 10 percent of its manufacturing to the US - which he called the "most likely" scenario. In January, the company also announced its "direct contribution" to the USA economy through investments and other spending would exceed $350 billion over the next five years, while it would establish a new Apple campus to house technical support for customers.

"This is just the beginning". It will continue to sell the vehicle outside the states. The company is making iPhone display glass in Kentucky, and is setting up new plants in other areas.

The world's two biggest economies are clashing over US allegations that China deploys predatory tactics - including outright cybertheft - to acquire technology from USA companies and challenge American technological dominance. Yesterday, as the Inquisitr reported, Trump told Apple that it should make their products in the United States, and therefore bypass his tariffs.

Ford also wouldn't want to spend millions on equipment to build the Focus Active here because at low sales volumes it wouldn't get a good return on its investment, Dziczek said.

For the Focus Active, the tariffs on Chinese vehicles changed everything.

Mr Trump last Friday threatened duties on another US$267 billion (S$368 billion) of goods on top of US$200 billion in imports primed for levies in coming days.

Dell Technologies said the proposed tariffs will increase costs of vital parts and components for its US services and manufacturing operations.
