Mac Mini Production Coming to the US According to Rumors
Rumors have been swirling that Apple
and its manufacturing partner Foxconn have been looking to bring
production for some Apple products to the United States. Currently,
Foxconn produces most of the products for Apple in China with some items
produced in South America. It remains unclear where exactly Foxconn
might set up shop in the United States.
However, the rumor points to Fremont, California as a possible location for the Foxconn facility. According to the rumor, the Apple product will be constructed in the US isn’t the Mac Pro the earlier rumors pointed to, but rather the cheaper Mac mini.
Apple expects sales of the Mac mini to increase significantly to 1.8
million units in 2013. That would be a 30% increase from the number sold
in 2012. Building the Mac mini in the US will certainly increase
construction costs, but it could increase sales as many Americans prefer
to buy products made in the USA.
