Apple Inc plans to move some production of Macintosh computers to the United States from China next year, chief executive Tim Cook said in remarks published on Thursday, in what could be a important test of the nascent comeback in US electronics manufacturing.
Apple makes the majority of its products, from Macs to the iPhone and iPad, in China, the world's factory floor for electronics. But like other US corporations, it has come under fire for relying on low-cost Asian labour and contributing to the decline of the US manufacturing sector.
Cook did not say which Macintosh products will be produced in the US.
