Photo shows second part to Austin visit
(Updated with photo of Cook at AppleCare center) As a part of his visit to Austin yesterday, Apple CEO Tim Cook also ended up touring the manufacturing plant where the Mac Pro is assembled, according to a new Twitter post. "Watching the Mac Pro come together in Austin yesterday, thanks to a team loaded with American manufacturing expertise," he writes, captioning a photo.
The factory in question is run by Flextronics, an American firm which mainly operates out of California but is legally based in Singapore. The Mac Pro is the only Apple product currently being assembled in the US; the vast majority are assembled in China by firms like Foxconn and Pegatron. Most Apple suppliers are based in that region as well.
Update: In a subsequent tweet, Cook has posted a photo of himself at the AppleCare center at the new Austin Apple offices.
