Apple To Manufacture Macs In The U.S.

Apple is reportedly planning to manufacture its Mac computer in the United States. Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the news in an interview with Brian Williams which will air on NBC tonight.

NBC News explains: “Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that one of the existing Mac lines will be manufactured exclusively in the United States next year, making the comments during an exclusive interview with Brian Williams airing tonight at 10pm/9c on NBC’s ‘Rock Center.’  Mac fans will have to wait to see which Mac line it will be because Apple, widely known for its secrecy, left it vague.”

Apple has faced criticism after Foxconn, a factory that manufacturers many of its products, has come under scrutiny for unsafe work conditions. Since then Cook has hired a group to investigate unsafe conditions. But since then the factory has had riots among workers. (Via Sarah Weinman).
