New Mac Pro to be Texas-made after Apple escapes Trump tariffs

Apple has now confirmed it will indeed manufacture the new Mac Pro in Austin, Texas, using the same facilities that it used to make the older Mac Pros. Apple will work with more than a dozen American companies for manufacturing the device, as well as getting components for the computer.

Production on the new Mac Pro is expected to start in the Austin facility "soon".

Apple's statement also included this puzzling sentence: "The new Mac Pro will include components designed, developed, and manufactured by more than a dozen American companies for distribution to U.S. customers".

Apple explained in the announcement that "the U.S. manufacturing of Mac Pro is made possible following a federal product exclusion Apple is receiving for certain necessary components".

The company had previously requested a tariff exemption on some Mac Pro components, such as the system's power supply unit, that are manufactured in China.

Apple's newly-designed Mac Pro might just be its most exciting machine in almost a decade.

Apple's insanely expensive new desktop computer will be made in the United States - not China, the company announced Monday. Cook also said in a statement that Apple "thank [s] the administration for their support in enabling this opportunity". "That's why every Apple product is designed and engineered in the USA, and made up of parts from 36 states, supporting 450,000 jobs with USA suppliers, and we're going to continue growing here". It spent more than $60 billion previous year. "Make them in the United States of America, no Tariffs!" he tweeted in July. It's created to be paired with Apple's new $4,999 Pro Display XDR monitor, which in turn is mounted on a $999 Pro Stand.

Trump told reporters after having dinner with Cook in August that the Apple CEO "made a good case" against tariffs.

"I thought he made a very compelling argument, so I'm thinking about it", Trump said at the time. "I am grateful for Apple's commitment to creating jobs in Texas".
