Approval of the new Mac Pro indicates that it will be launched very soon

Final Cut Pro X is updated to take advantage of macOS Catalina and the new Mac Pro

Yeah, guys, it seems that the wait – for those who have about R $ 50,000 left in their wallets, that is – is ending: as seen by MacRumors, Apple today received from United States Federal Communications Commission (Federal Communications Commission, or FCC) the approval of the new Mac Pro.

According to the document indicating the approval, Apple requested the process the day before yesterday (10/28) and already had the approval issued today. With that, we can conclude that Apple is in the final stages of preparation for the launch of its new professional machine – so far, the page for the new Mac Pro on the Apple website still indicates “Coming Soon” as an arrival forecast, but certainly we’ll know more about that over the next few days or weeks.

On the other hand, there is still no news of the Pro XDR Display, which will certainly be released with the new Mac Pro. If the logic is confirmed, the monitor is probably in the process of approval by the FCC and should have this approval issued in the coming days, paving the way for the pair to make their triumphant debut on the shelves of the world.

Production in the USA

The old Mac Pro (garbage can) was made in the USA, and when Apple announced the new machine, everyone thought it would follow suit. But apparently, Apple had its reasons for trying to manufacture the new desktop in China.

Shortly thereafter, however, the company itself confirmed that the Mac Pro would indeed be manufactured in the US, eliminating any doubts. Now, documents found in the approval of the machine show the following:

If there was any doubt that Apple originally intended to assemble the new Mac Pro in China (before moving to Texas), the label that Apple created for the FCC on July 30 (released today) says: “Designed by Apple on California. Assembled in China. ”

I always assumed that international models would still be made in China, and the US would handle the higher costs alone. No?

Still, it is possible that the company chose to manufacture the units that will be sold in the U.S. in its homeland, leaving China as a supplier of Macs Pro to the rest of the world, as noted by developer Steve Troughton-Smith.

Regardless of where it is manufactured … who is already counting the pennies?
