“We’ve already made the decision to buy a plant in Arizona, and this plant in Arizona will come online in 2024, so we have about two years to go, maybe a little less.” Cook told the employees. “And in Europe, I’m sure we’ll source from Europe as well as those plans become more apparent,” he told the meeting, which included Apple services chief Eddy Cue and Deirdre O’Brien, your director of retail sales and human resources. .

Cook did not provide details about the chips Apple will source from Arizona, but Apple supplier TSMC is currently building a manufacturing plant near Phoenix. TSMC started the project in 2020 and will begin mass production of 4-nanometer chips in 2024.

just last week, The Wall Street Journal said TSMC plans to open a second factory in Arizonawith the $12 billion plant set up to make next-generation 3-nanometer chips likely to be used for future Apple devices.

The Biden administration has aimed to encourage companies to make chips in the United States through financial incentives, while Apple has also sought to reduce its reliance on China. TSMC’s main factories are in Taiwan, but it also operates locations in Camas, Washington, as well as design centers in Austin, Texas, and San Jose, California.
