HONG KONG -- China's AAC Technologies, a micro-electronics component supplier for the iPhone, dismissed industry concerns that a potential U.S. tariff hike on Chinese imports would hurt overseas players along the Apple supply chain after posting robust third-quarter earnings. 

U.S. president-elect Donald Trump pledged during his election campaign to impose a 45% tariff on Chinese imports and make American companies such as Dell and HP bring manufacturing jobs home. But Shenzhen-based AAC, which supplies audio components such as speakers and microphones to Apple, seems to be playing down the impact of Trump's proposals.
