Apple's suppliers are gearing up for mass production of the iPhone 6.
The Apple iPhone 6 looks set to enter mass production very soon according to fresh rumours being reported online. Apparently, Foxconn are recruiting an additional 10,000 assembly-line workers at their Zhengzhou plant in preparation for production of the next iPhone.
Foxconn are a Taiwanese manufacturer who've produced the previous iPhone and iPad models. Whenever the Taiwenese company have hired new workers in the past it's always been ahead of production of a new Apple device, so we're pretty confident the information can be trusted.
Production of the iPhone 6 is expected to begin at the end of the 2nd quarter of 2013. With a second more affordable iPhone also thought to be manufactured at the same time. The whole situation is still pretty cloudy and we're still not even sure whether the next model will be known as the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 5S.
Whatever, the situation it looks like it won't be long before the next iPhone enters production. We expect the smartphone to go on to land in the 3rd quarter of 2013 and as soon as we hear more we'll let you know.
