Foxconn Exec: “We Are Churning Out About 500,000 iPhone 5Ss Everyday”

While the iPhone 5c may be struggling to get consumers attention, its sibling  – the iPhone 5s is having no such problem. According to a report from Wall Street JounralFoxconn has boosted production capacity for the iPhone 5S at the expense of the cheaper iPhone 5C as requested by Apple, according to sources.

As a result, production of the iPhone 5s has hit about 500,000 iPhone 5Ss per day, the highest daily output ever, an unnamed executive told the WSJ. It was also reported that the to get production to such a high capacity, there are about 600 workers workers on each iPhone 5S production line to handle assembly work.

“For the iPhone 5C, we only have 500 workers per production line as the assembly procedure is less complicated,” the Hon Hai (Foxconn) executive told the WSJ. “Although the market had concerns over demand for the new iPhone before its launch, our Zhengzhou site’s production capacity for iPhones has continued to grow over the past two years.”
