Apple Returned 8 Million iPhones to Foxconn

A new report says that massive numbers of iPhones failed the internal quality test of Apple. China Business (Via The Register) has a report that says that Apple has sent back as many as 8 million iPhones to Foxconn

If Foxconn cannot repair the units they would suffer a financial hit of about $1.6 billion ($200 per iPhone). 

The report is not specifying which iPhone model had to be sent back. If we do not see any supply issues of for the iPhone 5 and for the iPhone 4S in the coming weeks than it could have been one of the rumored two new iPhones. If that is the case than the launch of iPhone 5S or the low-cost plastic iPhone could be delayed.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
