Angry Apple partners call company ‘Poison Apple’

Angry Apple suppliers call company 'Poison Apple' due to 'hard-to-meet' standards

Congratulations, Apple: your supply chain partners are now giving you the same anonymous backbiting treatment that PC OEMs have long delivered to Microsoft. Reuters reports that Apple suppliers have started referring to the company as the “Poison Apple” due to its “hard-to-meet high standards and low price expectations.” Unnamed suppliers have also told Reuters that they’ve grown weary of Apple’s “ever-moving deadlines” and said they are now trying to “reduce their reliance on the company.” Given reports that several key Apple products are facing delays because they’re difficult to produce, it’s not surprising that there’s tension between the company and its suppliers, especially amid reports that several suppliers have taken hits to their earnings over the past quarter due to subpar iPhone demand.
