It looks like we’ve finally found the missing piece to the puzzle. Earlier this month, Apple CEO Tim Cook broke the exciting news that the company is bringing back Mac production in the U.S.
Mr. Cook also confirmed that Apple is investing $100 million for the said project and that the company will be working with “people.” The CEO did not specify what “people” meant, and there were speculations that Foxconn could be one of them. If you can still recall, Foxconn has already alluded that it will expand its business in the U.S.
Today, DigiTimes is reporting that Apple will be moving its Mac mini production in the U.S., conflicting previous reports that the Mac Pro could be it. Insider sources also told the publication that Foxconn will be responsible for managing the operations in the U.S. Interestingly, DigiTimes added that Foxconn already has 15 operating bases in the U.S. and that the Taiwanese company is poised to start recruiting workers soon, as early as next year. Apple and Foxconn has yet to confirm the report. For now, let’s take it with a grain of salt.
