Apple iPhone 6 chassis made by Catcher is reportedly rejected by Apple

The problem with Catcher's chassis lies with a defect found where metal parts connect to plastic. The defect was created by the supplier's anodizing process and could take as long as two to three months to fix. The process involves putting a coating of Aluminum Oxide over a product to help protect it from wear, and corrosion, and to make a device look better.
The replacement orders placed by Apple with Foxconn and Jabil are just short term, to replace the defective parts from Catcher that were earmarked for the 4.7 inch iPhone 6. It is not known if Catcher will still be supplying parts to the larger screened iPhone phablet that is supposedly starting mass production next month.

Its nice to see a company with high standards and not except low quality parts to just to make a buck.

That's what you'd expect out of the Apple company...quality first

Yep. Always high standards and quality. Except for the times when standards and quality are low. http://www.phonearena.com/news

They all have problems. I'm pretty sure it's hard to find a 100% perfectly built phone. http://www.businessinsider.com

Cool. And when a Samsung or HTC article comes up and the first 3 comments are from people praising their quality and standards, then, you will be ready and relevant. As for THIS article, it just feeds the false rhetoric of "Apple takes its time and gets it right." Have you ever heard that about Ssmsung, HTC, or Sony?

I really hope this chassis defect honestly means all these dummy phones and supposed leaks of the iphone 6 were all fake outs and spoofs to hide the real design of the phone. Cuz im sure all of iphone lovers agree. The new iphone 6 was looking hideous. I couldnt stomach sacrificing a good looking phone for the extra screen space. But idk. We will see.
