(Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. said the next version of its high-end Mac Pro desktop computer will be assembled in Texas after the company received tariff waivers on key components.The new model will be produced in the same factory in Austin operated by Flex Ltd. that has produced the previous Mac Pro since 2013, Apple said in a statement Monday. Manufacturing of the new model was “made possible” after the U.S. government approved on Friday Apple’s request for a waiver on 25% tariffs on 10 key components imported from China. The company was granted exclusions on several parts, including processors, power components and the computer’s casing.While some key components will be made in China and exported to the U.S. for final assembly, Cupertino, California-based Apple said the new version includes 2.5 times the value of American-made parts as the previous model. The new Pro will include components made by more than 12 U.S. companies in states such as New York, Vermont and Arizona for distribution to U.S. customers, Apple said. The company didn’t specify whether this includes Mac Pros being sold outside the U.S.In a statement, Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook thanked “the administration for their support enabling this opportunity.”Texas Governor Greg Abbott said his state’s “economy is thriving as the tech and manufacturing sectors continue to expand. I am grateful for Apple’s commitment to creating jobs in Texas.”Cook has met frequently with U.S. government officials, including President Donald Trump, in an effort to ease the impact of the U.S.-China trade war on Apple’s business. Over the summer there were reports that Apple would move production of the Mac Pro to China to escape a widening list of tariffs on Chinese-made goods.Trump had previously signaled that relief from tariffs on the Mac Pro would be rejected, saying in a July 26 tweet that “Apple will not be given Tariff waiver, or relief, for Mac Pro parts that are made in China. Make them in the USA, no Tariffs!” However, the president later told reporters “we’ll work it out.”While Apple did receive tariff relief for the 10 Mac Pro components, it has five other requests pending and hasn’t been spared from all duties. Products such as the Apple Watch, AirPods and iMac computers were hit by 15% tariffs earlier this month, while the iPhone, iPad and other major Apple products are set to be impacted later in December. Apple has maintained that its products are primarily designed in the U.S. and has grown its local investment since the trade war began brewing.The new Mac Pro’s production will begin soon, Apple said, without specifying a launch timeline. The revamped model was announced in June at the company’s annual conference for developers and starts at $6,000. Compared with the previous version, the new model is far more customizable and integrates with a new high-resolution external monitor.\--With assistance from Mark Niquette.To contact the reporter on this story: Mark Gurman in San Francisco at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Tom Giles at firstname.lastname@example.org, Molly Schuetz, Robin AjelloFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., the biggest assembler of iPhones, reported better-than-projected earnings after snagging additional business from Chinese smartphone giant Huawei Technologies Co.The company reported a 2.5% decline in net income to NT$17.1 billion, compared with the average analyst estimate of NT$16.3 billion. Revenue for the April-June period reached NT$1.16 trillion, according to Bloomberg calculations from previous monthly sales data provided by the company, a record for the second quarter.Hon Hai, the biggest piece of billionaire Terry Gou’s Foxconn Technology Group, has struggled to find new sources of growth after smartphone demand began to tail off in 2018. But in the June quarter, its Hong Kong-listed subsidiary FIH Mobile Ltd. cut costs and likely won orders from rival Flex Ltd., which shunned business from Huawei in response to U.S. sanctions. While investors expect U.S. President Donald Trump’s sanctions to eventually wallop Huawei’s business, the impact of those curbs should be fully felt only in the second half of the year.Flex’s orders from Huawei had gone to FIH, and that would benefit the company’s sales momentum in the second half, analyst Arthur Liao at Fubon Securities wrote in a July 23 note.To contact the reporter on this story: Debby Wu in Taipei at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Edwin Chan at firstname.lastname@example.org, Colum MurphyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
Huawei Technologies said it was seeking compensation from its contract manufacturer Flex Ltd for illegally withholding some 400 million yuan ($57 million) worth of its goods in the wake of a U.S. trade ban on the Chinese firm. In the letter, Huawei says Flex's Chinese unit "disregarded Chinese law" by refusing to return production equipment, raw materials and half-made products belonging to Huawei worth around 400 million yuan at its Zhuhai factory "for nearly two months" after Washington banned Huawei in May, the source said. The Huawei-Flex situation marks the latest fallout from Washington's trade sanctions against Huawei that has caused much disruption and confusion in the global tech supply chain.
Flex Ltd , a contract manufacturer for Huawei that is locked in a dispute with the Chinese tech giant over about $100 million worth of assets, said the market situation was affecting some of its jobs in the Asian nation. Chinese financial magazine Caixin reported late on Sunday that some 10,000 Flex jobs in China were expected to be cut as two major factories in Changsha and Zhuhai had stopped work due to its row with Huawei. While declining to comment on the report, a Flex spokesman said "after careful review of the market situation and customer need, we are offering impacted employees job opportunities within Flex Zhuhai Industrial Park and other Flex locations".
