Apple adding suppliers to boost iPhone 5c, iPad mini output for 2014
By Shane Cole
Facing growing demand and limited production capacity, Apple is reportedly set to certify two new Asian assembly partners to boost iPhone 5c and iPad mini supply, with at least one partner said to be ramping up production by the end of the year, according to a new report.
Taiwan-based contract manufacturers Wistron and Compal Communications will come on board to supplement existing partners Foxconn and Pegatron, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday. Wistron will reportedly handle iPhone 5c production, while Compal will build Apple's iPad mini.
Apple's strategy is largely rooted in limited supplies...... This story can be summarized in two words.....China Mobile... May also signal a change in the future to target market share vs margin..... But this cannot be accomplished until Apple is not dependent on Samsung, and has capacity in place. It all makes sense...
