Apple will make the new Mac Pro in Austin, avoiding some China tariffs

Sep 23, 2019

Apple will manufacture the next generation of its Mac Pro desktop computer in Austin, Texas, the company announced on Monday.

The Mac Pro is the only major Apple computer to be assembled in the United States. Most of Apple’s products, including the iPhone, are assembled in China and are facing tariff threats.

Apple over the weekend received federal product exclusions, the company confirmed, which enabled it to import some parts it needs for the Mac Pro without paying import tariffs. Apple said the new Mac Pro models include over two times more American-made components than previous models.
