Apple Balla reports that more than 300,000 Foxconn’s employees in the factory in Zhengzhou, China are working exclusively on iPhone 5S. Analyst Gene Munster, who works for Piper Jaffray, writes that the increased production will allow Apple to quickly catch up with the demand for iPhone 5S. Currently, people who bought their phones online expect to wait for their units up to three weeks. Soon the waiting time will be cut to three to five days. Some stores, which were forced to take reservations from their customers waiting for iPhone5S are now lifting these restrictions.

The biggest reason for the restricted supply of iPhone5s is the need for 600 workers in every assembly line for iPhone 5S, and only 500 for iPhone 5.

With the 500,000 iPhone 5S per day, Zhengzhou factory reached its maximum capacity. The rumor that Apple is planning on diversifying its Asian supply chain is making Foxconn reluctant to increase the number of plants used for the manufacture of iPhone 5S. They justifiably fear that Apple might decide to give future jobs to Foxconn’s competitor’s Wistron or Peatron. Rumors are that Apple wants to cut its dependence on Foxconn.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
