Apple to begin manufacturing Macs in U.S.

/ 6 years ago

In an interview with NBC, Tim Cook said that the company would be investing over $100 Million dollars in making these iMacs in the United States.

Tim Cook says,”The engine in [the iPhone] is made in America… but engines are made in America and are exported. The glass on this phone is made in Kentucky. We’ve been working for years on doing more and more in the United States.” He also said that Apple is indirectly responsible for creating more than 600,000 jobs in the U.S. via retail stores, research and development and 3rd party app developers.

However he blames that there is a lack of skills in the U.S. to facilitate modern manufacturing. The discussion went on and topic about Apple maps was brought up to which Mr. Cook said they screwed up and are working to correct that.

“On Maps, a few years ago, we decided that we wanted to provide customers features that we didn’t have in the current edition of Maps,” Cook said, “It [Maps] didn’t meet our customers’ expectation, and our expectations of ourselves are even higher than our customers’.  However, I can tell you, so we screwed up.”
