Apple iPhone 6 is demanded in huge quantities and for meeting the demand the company’s supplier are adding large number of new workers at their plants. Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) is all set to bring the new iPhone in the market, which is claimed to be way better than all the previous devices with respect to the features and applications. For this purpose, Apple’s biggest two manufacturing partners are reportedly hiring new staff in huge numbers.
Adding staff to meet demand
According to the reports from Taiwan media, these people will be dedicatedly working for manufacturing the new devices. The demand for the new iPhone is very high in advance of the launch, and for meeting these more than 100,000 new workers are being hired by Foxconn, who manufactures around 70% of the Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s mobile devices. Pegatron is another manufacturer, who is said to add approximately 33,000 new workers at the China plant, and manufacturers the remaining stock for the company.
Production running smoothly
The new iPhone is said to hit the market in the later part of the year. A report from au.ibtimes, citing Seeking Alpha’s Matt Margolis, states that the sapphire needed for production is available in ample quantities and therefore the production and delivery are running smoothly. To assure that the two variants i.e. the 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch, are released on time, the company has acquired well in advance enough sapphire glass for supporting the production, according to the report.
Earlier, it was doubted whether Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) would be able to manufacture the iPhone 6 with sapphire coated display due to lack of supply and it was thought that we will get to see such glass in the wearable device iWatch only.
The LCD display components of the 5.5 inch iPhone were shared on a website by Sonny Dickson. Besides the diagonal length of the phone few more features were reported of which an aluminum body is one. A new added feature is an antenna band design. Though the prices of the iPhone 6 are rumored to be higher than the existing ones, but this is not expected to have a negative effect on the demand.
