Apple CEO to meet with Hon Hai CEO to discuss iPhone X manufacturing issues

Nikkei Asian Review sources say Apple Chief Operating Office Jeff Williams will meet with Hon Hai CEO Terry Gou in Taiwan later this month. Hon Hai, also known as Foxconn, is the only assembler of the iPhone X and its Sharp subsidiary shares 3D sensor module creation duty with LG Innotek. 

The meeting will purportedly involve discussions about the production delays for Apple’s premium smartphone, adds the Nikkei Asian Review. That’s assuming there is a delay; there is or there isn’t, depending on which rumors you believe.

Williams will be in Taiwan on Oct. 23 for the 30th anniversary of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, which supplies the core processor for the current iPhones.
