Now We Know Why Apple Had Trouble Mass Producing the Mac Pro in the U.S.

In a report on Monday, The New York Times cited sources who said Apple’s attempts at assembling the Mac Pro in Texas in 2012 were delayed when the company failed to source enough screws from the U.S. According to the report, Apple needed easy access to thousands of screws to put the Mac Pro together. But when supply became scarce, the company was delayed by a single machine shop that could produce just 1,000 screws a day. It ultimately forced Apple to delay Mac Pro sales for several months, according to the report.
