The Cupertino-headquartered company had launched an investigation into the incident last week in which thousands of people, including employees, had vandalised the Wistron campus in Karnataka
which manufactures iPhones apart from other IoT products over wage issues. Wistron is one of the largest suppliers of iPhones in the world and manufactures iPhone 7 and the new iPhone SE models in India.
Expressing disappointment, Apple said that its focus is on making sure everyone in the supply chain
is protected and treated with dignity and respect.
“While these investigations are ongoing, our preliminary findings indicate violations of our Supplier Code of Conduct by failing to implement proper working hour management processes. This led to payment delays for some workers
in October and November,” added Apple.
