    Where do you move such manufacturing capacity. You don't. Not for a very good reason and it would take substantial effort and risk. This capacity was created well in advance of production with agreements in place before investment was even considered by NTE. You don't build a plant and hope they will come. If they don't come in a few months of the plant being built, the equipment is already being depreciated and you are losing your shirt. You would soon have an obsolete plant.

    This was created because Apple is moving away from Samsung. If their was not conflict with samsung, apple would have never left. You also have to consider, any move of such volume puts Apple at great risk. You just saw a glimpse of what could have happened.... If things didn't go as smoothly, they could have had HUGE shortages of products.... And with a phone/iPad that has a lifespan of months to a year max.... a month or two late is a huge loss for apple......
