US President Donald Trump has told Apple that there will be no customs exemption or relief on Mac Pro parts manufactured in China. And of course he announced it via Twitter.
Apple made the previous Mac Pro in the US, but the newly announced, upgraded model will be produced in China. However, with the US turning the screw on Chinese production through tariffs that leave Apple in a difficult situation. Some of the products already have a 25% tariff and hoped the Mac Pro would be unharmed.
Having asked for exclusion on Mac Pro and other devices earlier this month, Apple now seems to have the answer. And of course it's not the answer it has hoped for.
When Apple asked for a waiver, Apple said "there are no other sources of this proprietary Apple-designed component" that clearly did not. vai the decision. Instead, Trump wants Apple to build Mac Pro in the US. The Mac Pro from 2013 has been built in Texas ever since it was announced, and so far is the only major Apple project built in the country.
We have to wait and see how this pans out, and that's not the end of a case that neither Trump nor Apple will want to turn back on. And with Mac Pro already set to cost a remarkable amount of money, the prospect of cost increasing due to tariffs isn't something we like the sound of.
Apple will not be granted tariff exemption or relief for Mac Pro parts made in China. Do them in the US, no tariffs!
