Foxconn to Recruit 100K to Make iPhone 6

iPhone 6 is on the way and so is the recruitment drive to hire 100K additional Foxconn employees in China to manufacture the units. Foxconn is also rumored to be planning to begin plant automation after further production testing to keep pace with the estimated 120 Million units per year.

The paper also said Foxconn plans to automate its plants with its Foxbot industrial robots, but the recruitment drive ahead of the launch of the iPhone 6 in the fall reflects that human workers cannot yet be replaced.
