A Foxconn HR has mentioned that the new iPhone will arrive in October, getting all the fans excited. What makes it more interesting is the fact that it’s coming straight from the production unit. This however doesn’t make the news instantly believable, so you might want to take it with a pinch of salt which is what you should do with most rumors.
The head of human resources at the company’s Taiyuan unit said – “We just got the order. It [the release] will be around October”. And when asked about hiring more workers he went on to say, “Yes, it’s true we are hiring a large number of workers,”. It seems like Foxconn is running a headhunt to find employees for its assembly line.
The news apparently has been confirmed by a local newspaper which got in touch with Foxconn after reports broke out. So the news coming from two different sources seems to be somewhat of a confirmation, but we wouldn’t believe in it until the very last minute. The new iPhone is said to pack a reformed version of the A5X chipset packed with 1GB of RAM and some other unique feature that we haven’t heard of yet. It’s hard to maintain secrecy with Apple devices, and it seems like the surprise will be given away soon (again).
