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.
