American Apple is preparing to transfer the production of Mac Pro computers, which cost 6 thousand dollars, from the USA to China, sources familiar with the situation informed The Wall Street Journal. Apple signed a contract with Taiwanese computer manufacturer Quanta Computer to assemble computers at a factory in Shanghai. The location of a Taiwanese company close to another Asian supplier of Apple will help reduce the cost of shipping parts compared to shipping them to the US. The Journal notes that the message on the transfer of this production to China, however, does not change the already announced plans of Apple to transfer the assembly of its devices from China to other regions of Asia due to the continuing risks against the background of the trade conflict between the United States and China.
