Foxconn is apparently set to augment its existing workforce with 10,000 new additions of robots
We understand that making smartphones is definitely not an easy task and still Foxconn has been doing an amazing job with all those iPhones but we cant emphasize more on the fact that there is always some room for improvement and Foxconn is all set for that improvement and it is going to take a start by augmenting its existing workforce with 10,000 new additions. But this is where the surprise lies as these 10,000 extra recruitments are not going to be humans; we are talking about robots.
According to the CEO of Foxconn’s parent company, Apple iPhones are going to be the first ones to take full advantage of the robotic production methods. The robots are still under the testing phase which has reached the final stage by now so we are guessing they will get to work pretty soon now. The robots are however in short supply which makes it obvious that other companies won’t be able to buy them for their own use. With the announcement just a few weeks away, Apple should be having the phones produced at a faster rate and this explains why robots might just be a bit more helpful at this stage.
