iPhone 8 Plus Production at Apple Partner Wistron Allegedly Suspended Over Use of 'Unauthorized Components'

MacRumors:

Taiwan’s Chinese-language Commercial Times reported on Thursday that Apple ordered Wistron to halt production of iPhone 8 Plus handsets at its plant in Kunshan, China for two weeks pending a probe into alleged use of water-proof components from a supplier not certified by Apple. Wistron penalized several high-level executives in an attempt to regain Apple’s trust, according to the report. 

Wistron said, in a Thursday morning filing with the Taiwan Stock Exchange, that it would not comment on the reports, and denied that there had been a two-week suspension of production at the plant. Shares in the Apple assembly partner dropped by more than 5% in early trading, before recovering to close at NT$26.50, down by NT$0.45.

Wistron iPhone 8 Plus production is only a small part of total production for the device with rival supplier Foxconn assembling up to 80% of the handsets.
