Questions and Answers

Assembled in China; is there anything wrong?

I've been gifted an iPhone 6 gold recently. It has "Designed by Apple in California Assembled in China " written on the box. Why is it assembled in China? I mean is it the original one or not?

Many companies have their products assembled in China and the reasons vary. It does not mean that the iPhone is fake as many Apple products are assembled in China. It's not just about the cost of labor, but also includes things like workforce availability.

One of the best web sites to discover features of a phone is http://gsmarena.com/. Go there and click the search field at the top. Enter a phone model. Then, you can click a search result. You will see a phone with its specifications. You can click "OPINIONS" to read reviews on the phone. You can click "COMPARE" to find another phone and juxtapose it with the current one (up to three phones are supported to be compared). You can click "PICTURES" to see how the phone looks and "360º VIEW" to see the three-dimensional model of the phone. These all will help you to see what the real phone looks like and avoid getting fake ones.

Is there any other iPhone 6 that is not assembled in China?

I just want to make sure if the Californian design Apple iPhone 6 assembled in China, is original or not? Why it is assembled in China? Is there any other iPhone 6 that is not assembled in China?

Original iPhone 6 phones are assembled and manufactured in China (there is a manufacturing Apple factory in Brazil; nonetheless, Brazilians import iPhone 6 phones). The design and warehousing are USA-based and sourcing and distribution are world-wide-based. This means that different parts of the phones are supplied mostly by Asian companies from China, Japan, and South Korea (there are some European parts in the phones too); but these parts are shipped to China. However, there are fake iPhone 6 devices from China and Korea as well; and that is why we have the article on VisiHow about that.

iPhone 6 devices are manufactured in China because of the cheap labor costs, and it is cheaper for Apple to ship the ready products from China to the USA and then distribute them than to relocate a factory to another country (for example, a factory in the US would cost Apple approximately $4,2 billion).
