Apple Rebuffed by Taiwan Suppliers on Lower Price Demands for iPhone 7


Suppliers in Taiwan have reportedly pushed back on Apple Inc.’s request that they lower prices on components for the upcoming iPhone 7 models. This has forced the US-based company to back down on its demands according to reports in DigiTimes.

Apple asked Tawian-based suppliers, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), Largan Precision and others to reduce supply costs by as much as 20 per cent. The request for lower prices comes despite order volumes for the new models being down 30 per cent from a year ago.

Due to the difficulty for Apple to find replacements for TSMC’s foundry services and Largan’s camera module manufacturing, Apple was forced to pull back from making stronger demands, DigiTimes said.
