Apple to go for additional manufacturing partner
Electronics giant Apple has reportedly decided to broaden its manufacturing basis, opting for a 2nd Asian manufacturing partner for its desktop computers.
Apple has reportedly approached Pegatron Technologies, spin-off from Asustek Computer, with manufacturing orders for its desktop computers, reports DigiTimes. This decision could be related to the recent suicides at Apple's largest manufacturing partner Foxconn and sub-sequent events in China. However, neither of the companies has confirmed the rumours.
