    Apple reportedly moving Mac mini production to US with Foxconn



    Digitimes has shed more light on Tim Cook’s early December announcement that a Mac line’s production will be moved to the US in 2013. According to the hit-and-miss publication this evening, Cupertino-based Apple will move the production of its Mac mini to the United States, rather than the Mac Pro as previously theorized. The infamous Foxconn will be responsible for manufacturing it, moving away from its traditional Asia and South America locale.

    We’ve previously detailed several locations that Foxconn has in the US, where hiring is sure to ramp up to accommodate the production. Additionally with the help of automated production lines, Mac mini sales are expected to rise to 1.8 million units in 2013, up 30% from 2012. While we have a very solid guess on location, we’re still left scratching our heads with who the US manufactured iMacs are originating from.

    Yesterday Digitimes also reported that iPad mini shipments are expected to reach 8 million units in the fourth quarter. 10 – 12 million units are available, however a limited supply of touch screens are causing the hold up on some.
