Apple's U.S. supply chain growing Apple users may believe that most of the products from the company are manufactured overseas, but this is not the case, according to a recent report on the company's supply chain posted to the AppleInsider blog. In fact, crucial parts of the iPhone and iPad and other Apple technology are manufactured in the United States.

Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook recently stated that ARM processors are built by Samsung in Austin, Texas, and Corning Gorilla Glass for the mobile devices is made in Kentucky.

Some of the most prominent chip manufacturers that do business with Apple, such as Texas Instruments and Avago Technologies, have increased the supply of Apple products that are made in the United States.

According to an industry contact who spoke with AppleInsider, many of the companies are expanding their U.S. production as a result of orders from the large electronics manufacturer that keeps seeing record breaking sales. And these sales have not been limited to the United States. Apple sales have recently increased in Iran, according to the Oman Tribune. Apple products are banned under U.S. sanctions, but Iranian retailers source the sought-after products via underground supply chains running through the Middle East.
