Due to the on going trade war and complications between chine and USA, Apple is going to have a tough time for the production of its unit.
Labor in china is low compared to USA, as we have heard in past about Apple shifting its iPhone assembling form china to India saying it will be cheaper than china, but the quality and same security can be at risk according to many analytics.
But on Monday, company announced that Apple will manufacture the next generation of its Mac Pro desktop computer in Austin, Texas.
The Mac Pro is the only major Apple computer to be assembled in the United States. Most of Apple’s products, including the iPhone, are assembled in China and are facing tariff threats.
Apple over the weekend received federal product exclusions, the company confirmed, which enabled it to import some parts it needs for the Mac Pro without paying import tariffs. Apple said the new Mac Pro models include over two times more American-made components than previous models.
Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement,” The Mac Pro is Apple’s most powerful computer ever and we’re proud to be building it in Austin. We thank the administration for their support enabling this opportunity.”
A previous version of the Mac Pro was also assembled in Texas by Flex, a contract manufacturer. Apple said the new design, which was announced earlier this year, will be manufactured at the same facility.
The Mac Pro is a high-end computer for programmers, artists and other people who need a lot of power. It starts at $5,999, and isn’t one of Apple’s high-volume products. Apple doesn’t break out Mac Pro sales, but Mac computers including laptops and other desktops made up 10% of Apple’s revenue.
