Last Thursday, 25 year-old Sun Danyong committed suicide after a fourth-generation iPhone prototype he was responsible for went missing.

This does have some implications quite serious in nature. The brand is Apple’s crown jewel and they wont tolerate stuff like this. News of Foxconn mistreating workers is not new.

Is there going to be any friction between Foxconn and Apple ? Remains to be seen.
