According to China’s Economic Daily News (via Digitimes), Apple has rejected the production of metal chassis manufactured by Taiwan’s Catcher Technology for the iPhone 6.
The report notes that there were some defects present at the areas where the metal and plastic are connected.
These issues were related to Catcher’s anodizing process and they would require 2 to 3 months to fix.
Apple had to place short-term orders to longtime partners like Jabil and Foxconn.
A recent report by Bloomberg claims that the production of the iPhone 6 models will set off in July.
