Does this mean layoffs at the already beleaguered Foxconn plant in China? Some Mac computers will move their manufacturing to U.S. plants, Apple CEO Tim Cook told NBC’s Brian Williams in an interview set to air Thursday. Cook said the company “has been working on it for years,” but Apple fans will have to wait to see which product will be made in the U.S.—although Cook did say it would be an existing line. While Cook said he has long believed in manufacturing American products in the U.S., the decision comes after labor practices have been questioned at Apple plants managed by Foxconn in China.
