Taiwan-based ODM Wistron reportedly has landed next-generation iPhone orders from Apple, making it the third manufacturer of iPhone devices, according to a Chinese-language Economic Daily News report.
While not confirming the order, Wistron announced recently that it will increase its total investment at its subsidiary in Kunshan, China to US$200 million, from its previous budget of US$135 million. The Chinese publication notes that the Kunshan plant has been focusing on the production of mobile devices.
Wistron will utilize its expertise gained from its previous production of iPhone 5c for the manufacture of the next generation iPhone products, noted the paper. Foxconn Electronics and Pegatron are on tap to be the two main iPhone producers.
