Pseudo-reliable source DigiTimes reports that Apple may move some of its iMac production from supplier Qunta over to Pegatron, a longtime Apple assembly partner.
DigiTimes, via MacRumors:
Apple reportedly may shift some of its iMac orders from Quanta Computer to Pegatron Technology, with some related upstream supply chain players revealing they sent iMac components to Pegatron recently; however Quanta Computer and Pegatron both said they have no knowledge of the reports and refused to comment on clients.
Quanta is the original design manufacturer (ODM) for much of Apple’s Mac lineup, which includes the MacBook Pro, MacBook Pro, and iMac. Pegatron produces approximately one-third of the world’s iPhones and iPads.
The iMac was updated in October of 2012, and included new features such as a reduced thickness and a new laminated display designed to improve optical quality. Supply of the new model was heavily constrained in its first few months on sale.
