Mac Mini To Be "Made In The USA?"

“Designed in California” now might also be, “Designed and assembled in the United States.” Digitimes is reporting that Foxconn Electronics, who have been known to manufacture Apple’s iPhone, iPod, and iPad line of products, is currently in the process of having Mac mini’s manufactured in the United States. According to the report, “Foxconn has about 15 operating bases in the US” and the recruiting for these facilities will begin in 2013.  

In a recent interview with Brian Williams, Tim Cook noted that, “We’ve been working for years on doing more and more in the United States.” Speculation began soon after the segment that the Mac Pro was going to be the first of Apple’s products being manufactured in the United States due to its relatively low volume of sales. Mac mini shipments are expected to be up more than 40% from last year and could hit upwards of 1.8 million units shipped in 2013.
