Earlier in the week there was talk about the possibility that some iMacs could be assembled in the U.S. The speculation was due to the “Assembled in USA” caption that is etched into the casing of the new iMac. Now Apple CEO Tim Cook gives us some insight into the company’s plans.
In an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, Cook confirms that Apple will bring back “some” production of its iMacs in the U.S. That’s good news for the U.S. since we need more products here. It’s good for Apple’s image as well.
“Next year we are going to bring some production to the U.S. on the Mac. We’ve been working on this for a long time, and we were getting closer to it. It will happen in 2013. We’re really proud of it. We could have quickly maybe done just assembly, but it’s broader because we wanted to do something more substantial,” Cook said.
