Foxconn Expands Hires to Make New iPhones

We are about to enter August, which means that it is just over six weeks before the introduction of the new iPhones. As the date approaches, some of Ma's main partners are opening more positions to cope with demand, such as Foxconn.

According to Economic Daily News, Apple's largest supplier is expanding its seasonal hiring in Shenzhen (China), in addition to offering bonuses to existing employees of up to CNY4,500 (~ $ 2,472) so they renew their contracts immediately.

All of these efforts will have to meet the initial manufacturing demand for the new iPhones, which in the first weeks of sales usually reach tens of millions of units; As we reported last week, some analysts predict that Apple will market about 75 million handsets between September and January 2020.

Still according to Economic Daily News, Foxconn's Chinese factories are expected to produce the two top-of-the-line models (successors of the XS and XS Max iPhones), while part of the orders for the successor model of the iPhone XR will be assembled at the manufacturer's Indian facility.

This year's line of iPhones should look similar today: three phones, two of them with OLED screen and one with LCD. The main change has everything to be cameras, which should increase from two to three in the flagships and one to two in the entry model not to mention the front camera, which should also be updated.
