(Reuters) – Apple Inc <AAPL.O> is shifting the manufacturing of its new Mac Pro computer to China from the United States as trade tensions between the two nations escalate, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, citing people familiar with the matter.

The tech giant has tapped contractor Quanta Computer Inc <2382.TW> to manufacture the $6,000 desktop computer and is ramping up production at a factory near Shanghai, the report said.

Both, Apple and Quanta Computer did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
