Apple supplier Quanta is likely to stop taking assembly orders for the Apple Watch next year due to profit concerns, according to sources speaking with Taiwanese publication DigiTimes who claim the manufacturer could sell its plant in Changshu, China dedicated to assembling the wearable.
Reports last September claimed Quanta was working to full capacity to produce the Apple Watch Series 4 following strong demand for the wearable which brought the first major redesign of the device alongside its highly sought after ECG functionality, with sources claiming Taiwanese-based Compal Electronics had been hired to aid production of the model.
