Washington Apple will re-assemble its new high performance Mac Pro computer in Texas. This was made possible by the fact that the Group has received an exception from the US additional duties on goods from China for several important components of the device, the group said on Monday. Previously, it was said in media reports that Apple wanted to have the Mac Pro built in Asia in the future – like most of his devices.
The iPhone group had begun in 2013 to assemble the previous generation of the Mac Pro in Texas. According to media reports, Apple had to deal with various problems in the production, among other things, because the US infrastructure for electronics production is worse than in China.
In the summer, the Mac Pro was still in the mills of the trade conflict between Washington and Beijing advised. US President Donald Trump announced in July that the company would not receive any benefits or exemptions from Chinese customs punitive duties. “Build it in the US, no tolls,” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Apple CEO Tim Cook stressed a few days later in the conference call on the current quarterly figures, the group continues to strive for a mounting of the device in the US.
Apple had introduced the first new model of the Mac Pro for six years in early June. The computer is intended primarily for users with extremely high demands such as professional video editing. This is accompanied by a high price of at least 5999 dollars. The current US additional duties can add 25 percent to the price of components or equipment.
