Macs to be made in U.S., says Apple's Tim Cook

  • Apple is to start manufacturing one of its Mac lines exclusively in the United States.

    In an interview with NBC on Thursday, the firm's chief executive Tim Cook said the company had focusing on "doing more and more" in the U.S.

    Apple's products are primarily assembled in China where the company has come under fire over working conditions.

    The interview was Cook's first broadcast interview since taking over from Steve Jobs, who died in October 2011.

    Speculation over Apple shifting manufacturing of its Mac range has been mounting after some of the products in its latest line had the words "Assembled in USA" inscribed on the back.

    In a separate interview with Bloomberg Business Week, Cook said the company would be investing "over $100 million" in making more products in the U.S.
