Even if you don't know Foxconn's name, you know the products they produce. Major, beloved hardware brands like Apple and Nintendo rely on their assembly lines to make some of the most coveted gadgets in the world.
The death of the guardian of Foxconn's iPhone prototype is a tragedy. But deep down, gadgethounds are wondering where the phone is now. So far, none of us know where, so we're left to our imaginations.
Whatever role iPhone builder Foxconn played in 25-year-old Sun Danyong's death after a prototype iPhone he was entrusted with went missing, they will likely not pay the highest of prices: Losing Apple's business.
The fact that a Foxconn employee committed suicide or that mistreatment by Foxconn security didn't seem like it was in question, but Apple's official response to the matter just confirms that events did occur at the very least, somewhat along the lines of what was impled.
The security team for Foxconn, the company that manufactures the iPhone for Apple, is said to have subjected employee Sun Danyong to "unbearable interrogation techniques," leading him to commit suicide. He was under investigation for losing a prototype device.
