Apple (News - Alert) appears to be making some serious moves as we head into the New Year. The company has long come under fire for producing some of its most well-known products in China. The plants for these products have been known as being less than well maintained and the wages have been less than impressive for the people who are actually putting the products together. A new report that surfaced last week seems to indicate that Apple might be moving the production for the Mac Mini back to the states.
The Mac Mini has been getting quite a bit of press these days because the line of home computers is getting set to get a bit of a refresh. While the reports of the Mac Mini production coming back to the US is still just a rumor at this point, Apple has made it clear they will start making some of their products back in the states. The company has not said exactly which of its products will actually be made here, but the rumors of the Mac Mini being one of those coming back are just rumors for now.
The report of Mac Mini production coming back to the states seems to make quite a bit of sense, considering the number of Mac Minis there is expected to ship in 2013. While there are other reports that seemed to indicate that it would actually be the Apple’s huge desk top Mac Pro would be the product that had production moved to the United States but that seems to be less likely these days. Apple seems to be pretty much ignoring the desktop computers as they move towards mobile computing devices more and more. The same report that said that the Mac Mini will be coming to the US also said that Apple expects to ship 30 percent more Mac Minis than shipped in 2012.
