It seems like Pegatron, Apple’s contractor for assembling older iPhone 4 and 4S models, is under the knife edge this time. According to a report, over 86 labor rights violations have been observed in 3 of the factories being run by Pegatron. Few of the factory workers were interviewed and some clues about the up-coming products were in-deliberately leaked by them. Yes, they talked about a low price version of the iPhone.
According a work report of the factory, the process of pasting protective film “on the iPhone’s plastic back cover to prevent it from being scratched on assembly lines” was going on. However there is no word on the release of any such model of iPhone, from Apple, officially. The report further revealed that the Apple will soon release the plastic iPhone in the market.
We’ve never seen or heard of an Apple supplier to talk about the release of a product that has not yet been announced officially. It seems like Pegatron is going have a tough time dealing with the circumstances as Apple has a strict policy about the privacy of unannounced gadgets.
The Wall Street Journal discussed of the Apple commissioning Pegatron for assembling budget iPhone variants. They may also have had a contract for iPad orders for the coming 3 years. Rumors are that Apple may be launching a product called ‘iPhone 5C’ but what does C stand for, that stays a mystry. For now, we can safely assume that the Budget iPhone and the iPhone 5C are both coming in a variety of colors, and not just black or white.
