?The iPhone 5 is the most difficult device Foxconn has ever built. To make it light and thin, the project is very complicated ?, said a company employee, who did not want to be identified. ?It takes time to learn how to make this new device. Practice makes perfect. Our productivity has improved day after day. ?
T more than explained the lack of stock that has been stunning Apple consumers. No wonder Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, said: ?We appreciate everyone's patience and are working hard to make enough iPhones 5 for everyone.? The same employee confirmed that Foxconn is implementing quality improvements, which further reduce the chances of a device coming out of the factories damaged. (WSJ)
