Apple May Not Move Production out of China
In response to a question about Apple moving its hardware production out of China, Tim Cook said there has been a lot of “speculation” about the potential move. But he noted that he “wouldn’t put much stock in it” — adding that “parts come from everywhere, including the U.S.”
There was another interesting production-related comment. Cook mentioned that Apple currently makes the Mac Pro in the U.S. and the company “would like” to continue to do so. That’s pretty much contrary to recent reports suggesting that Apple is moving Mac Pro production to China, but it could hint that it may bring that product back to the U.S. eventually.
