According to reports, Apple is trying to avoid the shortcomings of the iPhone 14 later this year by asking major technology manufacturer Foxconn to hire iPhone assembly line workers in China ahead of time. Apple also said it was in talks with local governments to ensure the production of the iPhone 14 was secure in the event of another Covid-19 outbreak. Foxconn will not increase regular recruitment early in the year, according to United Daily News (and produced by 9to5Mac). However, Apple seems to want Foxconn to ensure that its manufacturing facility in Zhengzhou, China, called iPhone City, is working at full capacity to compensate for lost production in other parts of China. Overall, the coronavirus locks have left Zhengzhou unattended, so it is understandable.
To increase the recruitment, Foxconn has reportedly increased its offer to post-employment staff for at least 90 days from $ 984 to $ 1,286, which will surely bring many local residents to join the 200,000 staff. currently working at the plant. Apple production concerns stem from two major issues: the ongoing global malnutrition crisis and the Chinese government’s attempts to completely eliminate Covid-19 from the country. The iPhone 13 is blighted by supply problems, which sees some customers waiting longer than usual to get Apple’s new smartphone; Apple is almost certainly looking to avoid this situation happening again.
To avoid the real possibility of a Covid-19 outbreak, a loop production system was reported to be operating at the plant. This means that many employees actually live within the company premises, and do not leave the site for weeks at a time. Additional measures work with regular testing, and all visitors who need a negative test result before being allowed to enter the plant.
During a recent asset call, Apple’s Tim Cook noted that Covid-related disruptions and a shortage of minerals throughout the industry are two of the problems the company is currently facing. Cook also pointed out that weak exchange rates, a loss of Russian sales and a reduction in consumer spending thanks to the transfer fee in other cases Apple must navigate. Apple estimates these factors could cost California companies in the range of $ 4 billion to $ 8 billion in its current quarter.
However, we think that Apple can reduce the impact of these factors and ensure optimal production time, iPhone 14 will undoubtedly be another successful smartphone in the area of the very popular iPhone. This year’s post could offer some of the biggest changes in years with sleeker design, faster A16 Bionic, thicker main camera and even USB-C capability for the iPhone 14 Pro and the new iPhone 14 Max model is also rumored. In addition, recent scandals may have given us an overview of potential design changes for each iPhone 14 model.
