Apple’s new Mac Pro is made using automated manufacturing, and now according to a recent report, Apple is considering switching some of its battery production to robots.
The news comes from Digitimes, who have said that Apple plans to use automated production for its iPhone batteries in the future.
Apple is planning to have its iPhone batteries fully manufactured on automated production lines in 2014 to reduce its manpower demand. The move is expected to trigger other brand vendors to follow suit, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.
If Apple decides to produce iPhone batteries using automated production, then the company could switch the production of these devices to whichever country it wanted too.
Apple’s Mac Pro is currently made in the US, it is made using automated manufacturing with a number of robots, and Apple could also decide to move its iPhone battery production to the US as well.
