Apple: New Mac Pro is yet again mounted in Texas


Only Donald Trump did not want to make any exceptions for Apple with the additional duties with China - then threatened the company with relocation of assembly to the Far East. Now there seems to be a compromise.

Apple will screw its new high-performance computer Mac Pro back together in Texas. This was made possible by the fact that the Group has received an exception from the US additional duties on goods from China for several important components of the device, the company said.

According to Reuters, the US authorities approved ten out of fifteen requested computer parts exceptions.

Previously, it was said in media reports that Apple wanted to have the Mac Pro built in Asia in the future - like most of his devices. The previous generation of Mac Pros, however, is assembled since 2013 in Texas - apparently with negative consequences.

According to media reports, Apple had to deal because of the decision with various problems in the production, among other things, because the US infrastructure for electronics production is worse than in China. Following the announcement of Texas re-production, Apple's Wall Street shares rose 0.5 percent.

Apple's high-end calculator: This is the new Mac Pro

US President Donald Trump announced in July that Apple would not receive any relief or exemption from Chinese customs duties on the device. "Build it in the US, no tolls," Trump wrote on Twitter. Apple CEO Tim Cook stressed a few days later in the conference call on the current quarterly figures, the group continues to strive for a mounting of the device in the US.

Apple had introduced the first new model of the Mac Pro for six years in early June. The computer is intended primarily for users with extremely high demands such as professional video editing. This is accompanied by a high price of at least 5999 dollars. The current US additional duties can add 25 percent to the price of components or equipment.
