Apple Plans To Bring Some Mac Production Back To U.S. In 2013

In a recent interview with Rock Center and Bloomberg, Tim Cook not only hinted at an Apple HDTV, but also noted that Cupertino plans to bring some Mac production back to the United States and they’re putting up some major cash to help the process.

NBC reports:

In an exclusive interview with Brian Williams airing tonight at 10pm/9c on NBC’s “Rock Center,” Apple CEO Tim Cook announced one of the existing Mac lines will be manufactured exclusively in the United States next year. Mac fans will have to wait to see which Mac line it will be because Apple, widely known for its secrecy, left it vague. Cook’s announcement may or may not confirm recent rumors in the blogosphere sparked by iMacs inscribed in the back with “Assembled in USA.”

“We’ve been working for years on doing more and more in the United States,” Cook told Williams.

In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Tim Cook noted that Apple is putting $100 million into the process:

It’s not known well that the engine for the iPhone and iPad is made in the U.S., and many of these are also exported—the engine, the processor. The glass is made in Kentucky. And next year we are going to bring some production to the U.S. on the Mac. We’ve been working on this for a long time, and we were getting closer to it. It will happen in 2013. We’re really proud of it. We could have quickly maybe done just assembly, but it’s broader because we wanted to do something more substantial. So we’ll literally invest over $100 million. This doesn’t mean that Apple will do it ourselves, but we’ll be working with people, and we’ll be investing our money.

That’s a lot of cash to drop on U.S. production. I wonder if things are becoming unstable in China. If anything this will definitely create more jobs in the consumer electronics field. It’s good to see Apple placing production in other areas. Hopefully this will help Apple keep up with the demand of future products.

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and
    entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently
    about. I am very happy I came across this during my hunt for something relating to this.
