EDN, June 24; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 24 June 2014]

Catcher Technology’s 4.7-inch iPhone 6 chassis has reportedly been rejected by Apple due to defects in the connecting areas between the plastic and metal parts, forcing Apple to place short-term orders with its existing suppliers Jabil and Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry), according to a Chinese-languageEconomic Daily News (EDN) report citing market watchers.

Catcher declined to comment.

The market watchers pointed out that the issue was caused by the Catcher’s anodizing process and may take 2-3 months to fix. Catcher’s June and July revenues are expected to be weaker than expected as a result of the lost orders, the paper added.
