TAIPEI -- Catcher Technology, a key Apple metal casing supplier, suffered deteriorating margins and a double-digit drop in sales and net profit in the second quarter ending in June, amid weak demand for the iPhone 6s.

The company's prospects are further clouded by a 3.8% year-on-year drop in revenue in July at what should be a peak time for shipments before Apple unveils its new smartphone range in September.
