On Tuesday, July 30, Apple released a report for the third quarter of fiscal year 2019. During a telephone press conference on the publication of the report, Apple CEO Tim Cook (Tim Cook) said that the company wants to continue the release of Mac Pro in the United States.

In response to a question about whether Apple will withdraw Mac Pro production from the United States due to the possible introduction of a tax on components imported from China, Tim Cook said the company will continue to invest in its manufacturing facilities in the United States. He noted that the company's devices and components for them are manufactured in the USA, Japan, Korea, China, Europe and other countries, noting that "this is the nature of the global supply chain."
"We are making Mac Pros in the United States, and we want to continue to do it. We are currently working there and investing in it. We want to continue this," said Apple CEO.
Recall, Apple has been producing the current Mac Pro model at its Texas plant since its launch in 2013. But in June, sources at The Wall Street Journal reported that the Mac Pro 2019 model year will be produced in China. Allegedly, the contract manufacturer Quanta Computer will be engaged in its assembly. Then Apple said that the final assembly is only one part of the production process and the Mac Pro is designed and built in California and includes components of American production. In July, Apple executives asked the U.S. authorities to exempt import tax on parts for the new Mac Pro, but President Donald Trump refused.
