The United States government has threatened to slap Chinese imports with an additional $300 billion in tariffs, which would affect Apple. In a pre-emptive move, Apple has now asked the Trump administration to exclude the new Mac Pro parts and select accessories like Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad from a 25 percent tariff on Chinese imports.
When Apple debuted the new, modular Mac Pro, many pointed out the aesthetic was very similar to a cheese grater. It turns out that, despite popular consensus, the new Mac Pro wouldn’t make for a great cheese grater.
After plenty of speculation, the new modular Mac Pro is now officially official. It turns out the rumors had plenty of time to swirl around because Apple was taking its time to hammer out the design details before unveiling the powerhouse desktop machine.
