Reports are circulating that Apple is moving production to China, but this is not mandatory. Tim Cook mentioned during Apple's latest earnings call that the company wants to continue to make Mac Pro in the US and invest in additional capacity. Even if Apple builds a recycled Mac in the US, the tariffs can still be painful. Many of the parts Apple needs are still likely to be made in China, and these costs can quickly add up.
The company is not alone either. Regulators have also downloaded tariffs on electronics that affect other computer manufacturers, including those for partial-circuit boards and graphics cards. If not, many computers were more likely to become more expensive, including home-built computers using Chinese parts. Apple has simply been one of its biggest targets, and is still at risk of significant cost increases if the US moves ahead with a new round of tariffs on December 1
