"We have confirmed all workers are being compensated appropriately, including any overtime wages and bonuses, all overtime work was voluntary and there was no evidence of forced labor".

But this year, Apple's making it easier than ever to watch its big announcements.

While Apple did not reveal what it will announce at the event, the market has widely anticipated that the USA consumer electronics giant will unveil three new iPhones with Hon Hai expected to serve as the major assembler.

Starting time and date for the Apple Event this week is September 10, 2019, at 10AM Pacific Time. However, besides that, this year, for the first time, Apple is also live-streaming the event on YouTube. So, if you already have an Apple pencil, you will be now able to use it with iPhone pro and iPhone pro max.

The most debatable topic regarding the new iPhones now is the design of the camera.

9to5mac.com further points out that, Mr Kuo 'expects these changes with next year's iPhones will drive YoY growth to new highs'.

Apple has recently been emphasizing growth in services over hardware.

With that said, it was noted Apple has not yet decided on an official name or price for the device in question. In its latest report, Apple said it conducted 44,000 interviews with supplier employees past year to check if they were properly trained and knew how to voice concerns, while taking new steps to prevent forced labour.
