And don't miss Tim Culpan's video on the iPhone's 10th birthday: "One thing that hasn't changed is Apple's reliance on China -- and Taiwan's Foxconn Technology Group -- to make what is now the company's most important product.

Now U.S. President Donald Trump wants in on the action. That's not likely to pan out as he hopes."
