FT: Apple is facing poor yield of iPhone casings made in India
A new report from the Financial Times claims 50% of all iPhone casings made in India at the moment are rejected by Apple quality control. The report is based on information from former Apple employees and specifies the low yield issue in Indian manufacturing giant Tata’s plant located in Hosur. No other manufacturing plants were mentioned in the report.
The new report claims that the low iPhone casing yield in India is a big hit on Apple’s plans to outsource a larger chunk of iPhone manufacturing in India. The former Apple employees cited in the report believe that the casing yield situation will improve, but the process will likely take a significant amount of time and effort.
