Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry), the company known for making Apple's iPhones, has issued a statement saying there may be changes to customers' orders due to market developments, according to Digitimes.

"Recently, there may be some changes of customers' orders based on the market development. However, there should be limited impact after combining all ups and downs of order flow," said Foxconn in a statement released through the Taiwan Stock Exchange (TWSE) on Sunday.

It has been rare for Foxconn to issue warnings concerning its order status, though the statement did not specify the clients or kinds of orders to be affected, Digitimes reports. The company said it "has built a global manufacturing network and will continue to diversify the portfolios of clients and production locations to meet the customers' needs and maximum the corporate's benefit."
