Next Gen iPhone Could Be Delayed Due To A Virus

Apple’s largest chip manufacturer, Taiwan Semiconductor, was recently exposed to a virus, which was responsible for malfanctuniong of new installations. Due to the severity of the issue, news are emerging that Apple’s future flagship iPhone could be delayed, as a direct result of this occurence. Taiwan Semiconductor anticipated to be fully recovered by today, as reported by Associated Press.

Bloomberg reported that the “Taiwanese company said the incident, which comes as it ramps up chipmaking for Apple Inc.’s next iPhones, would delay shipments, without specifying which customers would be affected. Its shares fell more than 1 percent in Taipei.”

It should be emphasized that the neither Apple nor Taiwan Semiconductor were targeted and that no data was stolen. Rather it was a WannaCry virus variant targeting vulnerable machines connected online.
