Apple’s executives, including CEO Tim Cook, recently swooped in on Capitol Hill for a Senate subcommittee hearing related to its corporate tax practices. We’ve covered many of the events in detail already, but Cook revealed one compelling tidbit of information during his speech: where Apple plans to build its Mac computers in the U.S.
Cook said that manufacturing will occur in Texas, where Foxconn has factories. 9to5Mac said the location choice is a bit odd, however, because Quanta was originally assumed to be Apple’s U.S.-based manufacturing partner. Quanta, has plants in Tennessee and in California, though, and not in Texas.
Rumors suggest that Apple will build its Mac mini products in the U.S., although the company has so far only said that it will build a single model of Mac computers and hasn’t identified a specific model.
