In November last year, Foxconn announced that it is spending nearly $2.6 billion over the next two years to set up a sixth-generation factory in Taiwan to better meet Apple’s demand for displays.
In July of 2014, before the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were officially unveiled, and right around the time manufacturing for the devices was about to kick int full gear, reports surfaced that Foxconn was adding robots to the assembly line to help out.
When Apple unveiled the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at the Flint Center last week, the smartphones were everything but a surprise. In the months preceding the announcement, the rumor mill had leaked a seemingly endless barrage of parts and components for the iPhone 6. In fact, at one point, even a video of a fully functioning iPhone 6 surfaced.
French Apple website IGen.fr has published photos, which reveals a lot of interesting information about the iPhone 6 such as the internal code names, the dimensions, and other details such as the protruding camera. The photos appear to be from Apple’s largest manufacturing partner Foxconn’s factory.
When Apple launched iPhone 5s in September, it wasn’t very easy to get one, especially if you wanted a gold iPhone 5s.
However, just in time for the holiday season, the shipping estimates for iPhone 5s has dropped to just 3 to 5 business days, and a recent survey suggests that it is reaching 90% availability in Apple’s U.S. retail stores.
