Cook: Apple Will Build More Macs in U.S.

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – The Mac is coming home: Apple CEO Tim Cook recently signaled that the tech giant would manufacture more of the popular computers in the United States.

Low labor costs have been a primary reason for the company outsourcing most assembly to the Asian market.

“Next year we’re going to bring some production to the U.S.,” Cook stated through a report from Bloomberg Businessweek on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the tech giant could work with other manufacturing companies for assembly. “This doesn’t mean that Apple will do it ourselves, but we’ll be working with people and we’ll be investing our money,” Cook went on to say.

Cook also cited a responsibility to create jobs, welcome news to a U.S. market that continues to gain following the global economic recession.

In October, Apple unveiled a new iMac alongside the iPad mini. The new computer which was made available Friday features a slimmed down display which Apple maintains provides 75% less reflection compared to previous generations. Apple has also had considerable success with its MacBook Pro and MacBook Air lines.
