In China's Henan province, the Zhengzhou capital city government said in a statement on its website this week it had awarded 82 million yuan ($12.53 million) in subsidies to companies under Foxconn, a major iPhone assembler.
Officially called Hon Hai Precision Industry Co michael kors handbags australia online , Foxconn employs hundreds of thousands of workers in the province, and a subsidy of this kind suggests the government is concerned about the company's ability to maintain its workforce, analysts said.
Another Taiwanese supplier said Foxconn had granted its factory workers time off around Chinese New Year, which falls on February 8, rather than follow its past practice of paying overtime to keep its production lines humming through the biggest holiday in China.
Hon Hai declined to comment on the issue.
Hon Hai closed down 0.1 percent, but had been trading earlier at lows not seen in over four months.
Among LCD panel makers michael kors handbags australia , Japan Display Inc fell 4.7 pct while LG Display Co Ltd fell 3.4 percent.
TSMC, the world's largest chipmaker and which has supplied some of the chips used in Apple iPhones, fell 1.8, while another Taiwanese assembler, Pegatron Corp, ended 5.7 percent lower.
Other suppliers such as Japan's Murata Manufacturing Co Ltd michael kors australia online , Alps Electric Co Ltd and TDK Corp fell by 3 or 4 percent.
Production is expected to return to normal in the April-June quarter, the Nikkei reported.
However, Patrick Moorhead, an analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy, said he was a bit skeptical about the production cut reports.
"Apple has been gaining significant market share in pretty much every region, and I'm not seeing a global slowdown michael kors australia ," Moorhead said.
Tepid forecast by Apple suppliers such as Jabil Circuit, which manufactures casings for iPhones, and Dialog Semiconductor GmbH in December stoked fears that iPhone shipments could fall for the first time.
Wall Street has also tempered its view on the high-flying stock in recent months. Since early December, about a third of the analysts tracked by Thomson Reuters have trimmed their estimates on Apple.
For fiscal 2016, Apple is expected, on average michael kors miranda leather wallet , to grow revenue by under 4 percent, a far cry from the 28 percent revenue growth it achieved in the fiscal year that ended in September.

The Los Angeles Lakers posted one of the biggest upsets of the NBA season on Sunday with an unlikely 112-95 victory over the reigning league champions Golden State Warriors.

""I feel terrible not being able to be out here for every single game,"" said Bryant, who is retiring after the regular season. ""If I can give it a go I will go out there and try.""
Asked how many of the Lakers' final 18 games that he would be able to play, Bryant said, ""Hopefully all of them. I know it is wishful thinking.""
Stephen Curry finished with 18 points, six rebounds and four assists michael kors fulton wallet brown , but shot just one of 10 from beyond the arc for the Warriors, who saw their seven--game win streak snapped.
Curry's backcourt partner Klay Thompson scored 15 points, but missed all eight of his three-point attempts and shot seven-for-20 overall.
Golden State played without forward Andre Iguodala, who had an injured left hamstring.
