Apple asks Trump to exempt Mac Pro components and other products from increased import duties


Not only Huawei is having a hard time because of the trade war between China and the United States. American companies are not particularly pleased with the course chosen by the current president. The increase in import duties will most obviously and negatively affect the price of goods, and ordinary consumers, as always, have to pay for all this. And now it has become known that Apple has asked the Trump administration to exempt components for Mac Pro workstations from paying duties. One of the first to notice this was Bloomberg journalists.

Apple reportedly sent several applications to the US Trade Representation (the very first one dated July 18), asking the government to exempt a number of specific products from paying duties at a new 25 percent tariff, imposed on goods from China. In fairness it should be noted that the new tariffs have not yet come into effect in full, but when and if this happens, they will also affect consumer electronics. Obviously, in this case, technology companies like Apple, which place orders for the production of their products in China, will have to either raise prices or incur losses.


The documents do not directly mention Mac Pro. But, as the source notes, the components listed in the applications are clearly intended for the desktop system. In particular, the list mentions the cooling system for the processor, GPU, as well as the chassis and computer case. Apple also requests that some of its accessories be excluded, including the Magic Mouse 2 and the Magic Trackpad 2.

As you know, a professional Mac Pro PC was the latest Apple device manufactured in the US, but in June, The Wall Street Journal reported that the company plans to move its production to China.

Apple's request has yet to go through a stage of open discussion, and only after that the agency will make its decision on this issue.

Several US technology corporations, including Apple and Microsoft, have previously expressed to the regulator their concerns about tariffs. In a statement issued last month, Apple said that the new tariffs "will lead to a reduction in Apple's contribution to the development of the US economy" and "upset the balance in the market, ensuring the advantage of competing companies from other countries."

Earlier, we also heard that major consumer electronics manufacturers, including HP, Dell and Microsoft, are considering moving production outside of China. But there is no confirmation of these rumors yet. On the contrary, Microsoft soon after the appearance of the first messages hurried to refute them.

At the recent WWDC 2019 conference, Apple introduced a new generation of Mac Pro workstation, which came out very expensive. Its basic version costs $ 6000, and the top version costs about $ 45 thousand.
