Foxconn contract assembler will hire 200,000 more people

Ahead of the iPhone 13 launch, Wang Xue, deputy general manager of Foxconn's Zhengzhou plant, said Foxconn would need to hire an additional 200,000 workers by the end of September to meet production needs.

The production of iPhone 13 smartphones started last month. Each year, assemblers and component manufacturers employ a large number of employees in July and August, but this time Foxconn will continue to recruit staff in the fall. In early August, Foxconn once again raised bonuses: if employees work on the production line for 90 days, they will receive a bonus of $ 1,575. Foxconn is also reportedly conducting an on-site coronavirus test to safely expedite the hiring process.

According to the latest information from Chinese sources , Apple will begin sending out invitations to the iPhone presentation on September 7, and a press conference is scheduled for September 14. Next, on September 17, they will start accepting pre-orders, and all four versions (iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max) will go on sale on September 24.

As previously reported , the most significant design change on the iPhone 13 is this cutout, often referred to as the bangs. Bangs debuted in 2017 on the iPhone X and has appeared in every new Apple smartphone ever since.

The smartphones will be based on the Apple A15 Bionic single-chip system. The screen of older models will support an adaptive image refresh rate from 1 to 120 Hz, in addition, the company will increase the capacity of flash memory up to 1 TB.
