Apple’s new Mac Pro to be made in Texas – Apple. Good news, congrats to the communities and it’s great to see Apple doing this –

“As part of its commitment to US economic growth, Apple today confirmed that its newly redesigned Mac Pro will be manufactured in Austin, Texas. This latest generation Mac Pro, which was unveiled at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developer Conference in June, will begin production soon at the same Austin facility where Mac Pro has been made since 2013..

In December, Apple announced plans to expand its presence in Austin and a dozen other cities across the country, including San Diego and Seattle.”

Couple things jumped out in the press release…

“The US manufacturing of Mac Pro is made possible following a federal product exclusion Apple is receiving for certain necessary components.

We thank the administration for their support enabling this opportunity – Tim Cook.”

Is there any information, or does anyone know how to get “a federal product exclusion for certain necessary components?” Asking for a friend.

What’s pretty amazing is it appears Apple will be making Apple devices in the USA before Foxconn it seems…
