After tariff exemptions, Apple confirms it will produce new Mac Pro in the US

Apple announced on Monday that it will manufacture the new Mac Pro in Austin, Texas, after the US government eases some component import tariffs.

US trade regulators approved last Friday 10 of Apple's 15 tax exemption claims amid a broader suspension of computer component taxes.

The new Mac Pro became the subject of political controversy after news emerged that Apple was shifting production from its flagship computer to China.

Launched in June as the solution for high-processing users, the computer is Apple's most expensive product, with the most basic version costing $ 6,000.

"The new Mac Pro will include components designed, developed and manufactured by more than a dozen US companies for distribution to US customers," Apple said in a statement.

The US authorities' decision could make it easier to assemble devices in the United States, reducing parts import costs. While Mac Pro is just a niche business for Apple, production within the US was a rare case when a company tried to bring technology products back to the country.

In 2012, Apple President Tim Cook appeared in a television commercial stating that the company would make a Mac in the US – the first Apple product in years to be made by American workers.

Apple added that its latest Mac Pro computers will soon begin production in the same facilities as previous generations of the computer.
