Apple looks to bring Mac mini production to U.S. - report

PanARMENIAN.Net - Apple plans to bring Mac mini production to the U.S.

As Mashable reported citing Digitimes, Foxconn (which manufactures most of Apple's gadgetry in China) will handle the production in one of its U.S. factories. The production will start in 2013.

Digitimes' predictions are hit or miss, but Apple is looking to bring a chunk of the Mac manufacturing process to the U.S. Apple CEO Tim Cook said as much in a recent interview, without specifying which line of Macs will be produced domestically.

"We've been working for years on doing more and more in the U.S. Next year, we will do one of our existing Mac lines in the United States," said Cook in an interview with NBC's Brian Williams.

Besides the Mac mini, another likely candidate for production in the U.S. is the iMac, as some new iMacs already bear the marking "Assembled in USA".

Digitimes claims Mac mini shipments are expected to hit 1.4 million units by the end of 2012 and rise 30% to 1.8 million units by the end of 2013.
