"Be that as it may, the central display target that Apple has with their larger displays is big, shiny and glossy..."

Besides the glossy issue (which is default, but they do often have matt as on option) have you tested any high-end Apple display's colour accuracy? You will find that it is pretty close to sRGB, which is the standard in their market.

"...and where do you think it would be manufactured anyway?"

It is not where it is manufactured, it is 'who' is manufacturing. Foxcon in China where most iPhone 5 are manufactured has 'no' design, nor test methodology input, which affects iPhone 5's display. Do not confuse Apple's outsourcing with the usual OEM method of manufacturing. They control 'every' aspect of the process, from concept to design to manufacture. Unlike simply badging the device as in OEM method. 

Apple is not alone in this; HP, whose DreamColor displays that the post industry relies on, are also manufactured in the far east. They are delivered with default settings that correspond to a standard.

Toshiba, Samsung, Sony, etc. are designed in far east for that market. Apple and HP is designed in the west and for that market. 'That' is the difference.
