Apple is boosting its commitment to the American workforce, part of a push to invest hundreds of billions into the U.S. economy.
In a major announcement on Monday, Apple said it will build its redesigned Mac Pro in Austin, Texas.
The move comes three days after U.S. trade officials approved exemptions that allow Apple to import key Mac Pro parts from China without them being subject to tariffs.
“The Mac Pro is Apple’s most powerful computer ever and we’re proud to be building it in Austin,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement. “We thank the administration for their support enabling this opportunity.”
