Catcher briefly out for iPhone 6 casings; Jabil, Foxconn filling in

updated 10:02 am EDT, Tue June 24, 2014

Defects delay Catcher's entry into device's supply chain

Apple has at least temporarily rejected Catcher as a source for 4.7-inch iPhone 6 casings, says China's Economic Daily News. In testing, Apple is said to have discovered defects in the areas connecting metal and plastic parts in sample casings, caused by Catcher's anodizing methods. In the short-term orders have been placed with Jabil and Foxconn instead; it may take Catcher up to two to three months to fix the glitches.

It's not certain which company might be producing casings for the 5.5-inch iPhone. Catcher, though, is already deeply embedded in the Apple supply chain, producing casings for the iPhone 5s and MacBook Pro. Both of the new iPhone models should ship sometime in the fall.
