With Apple confirming plans to begin building Mac computers in the United States next year, more significant shifts in the supply chain will make it easier for Apple to finally start building more of its hugely popular products here at home.
Last night, Bloomberg reported that a source at Foxconn indicates that it will likely move some of its operations to the U.S., pending the company’s ability to find adequately skilled labor.
“We’re looking at doing more manufacturing in the U.S. because, in general, customers want more to be done there,” a source at Foxconn tells Bloomberg.
The comments come as Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook has revealed that his company will spend $100 million to produce one entire line of Macs in the U.S. next year. Cook declined to say exactly which Mac product will be built domestically.
