Earlier this month, we reported that Apple will bring back some Mac production back to the U.S. next year. Speculation suggested that the Mac Pro would be the one that would be manufactured in the U.S due to its relatively low volume of sales.. However, now DigiTimes reports that it will be the Mac Mini that will be manufactured in the U.S and not the Mac Pro.
Apple is reportedly set to move its Mac mini production lines back to the US with Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) to be responsible of handling establishment, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.
According to the report, Foxconn already has “about 15 operating bases” in the U.S. and the company plans on hiring workers for 2013 for new automated production lines. Should be an interesting 2013 for Apple.
