Apple has confirmed that its all-new Mac Pro will be manufactured in Austin, Texas at the same manufacturing facility where the last Mac Pro was assembled, following reports of Apple moving production to China.
The news, confirmed within an update to the official Apple Newsroom on Monday, claims the new $5,999 machine will include parts produced across the United States, supplied from sources in Arizona, Maine, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas and Vermont.
US President Donald Trump publicly slammed down Apple’s request for tariff exemptions on parts for the new machine, with Apple CEO Tim Cook saying Apple wants to continue to make the Mac Pro, claiming Apple would continue to invest in its US supply chain.
Apple has been making the Mac Pro in Austin, Texas since 2013. “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,” Tim Cook said within a statement.
