The new iPhone is rumored to go in production this quarter. Apple manufacturing partner Foxconn is hiring new factory workers for the production of the new iPhone 5S or low-cost iPhone.
Apple is supposed to start producing the new iPhone at Foxconn this quarter. Today the Wall Street Journal reports that Foxconn has resumed hiring after the post holiday freeze to prepare for the iPhone 5S production.
Foxconn has added 10,000 workers for the new iPhone. If Foxconn is making the iPhone 5S or the rumored low-cost iPhone is not clear. We expect two iPhone models this year, but nobody knows when Apple is unleashing them. The best theory is that the low-cost iPhone is coming soon and the iPhone 5S is launching after summer.
