Earlier this week we wrote about the fact that Foxconn and Pegatron received an order for production of the new iPhone 6 and currently recruiting new employees. Apple now organizes supply for the necessary components and assembly of new items that will start next month.
As reported by the Economic Daily News (EDN), the housing for the 4.7-inch iPhone 6, supplied by Catcher Technology was rejected by Apple due to the level of quality that did not meet the requiremetnts. Complaints caused defects in the docking area of plastic and metal parts, so that the Cupertino company had to quickly pass orders for release housings toother contractors – Foxconn and Jabil.
According to preliminary data, the problem is with the anodizing technology. On its removal, Catcher may need 2 to 3 months. Due to loss of earnings Apple orders, Catcher in June and July will be lower than previously forecast. In most, Catcher declined to comment on the message.
Based on the information previously obtained from different sources, we can say that the iPhone 6 will be dressed in a thin aluminum casing with anodized finish and rounded edges. It will receive an advanced Touch ID fingerprint reader , energy-efficient A8 processor and improved main camera with a long-awaited optical image stabilization.[via DigiTimes]
