Apple investing $100M in U.S. production

Apple CEO Tim Cook has announced that the company will bring “some production to the U.S. on the Mac” in 2013, according to a Bloomberg Businessweek interview, which notes that the company will invest more than $100 million in the U.S. production of Macs. “We could have quickly maybe done just assembly, but it’s broader because we wanted to do something more substantial,” Cook said. Speaking on existing American-made Apple products, Cook also noted the processor for the iPhone and iPad is already made in the U.S., and the glass for the devices is made in Kentucky. Assembly, however, has been handled substantially in Asia by partners such as Foxconn.

Cook also mentions the American-made Mac line on tonight’s episode of NBC’s “Rock Center with Brian Williams,” saying, “Next year, we will do one of our existing Mac lines in the United States.” The full interview airs at 10 p.m. Eastern tonight.
