Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg have recently reported that Foxconn has begun hiring more people in China to begin assembling the new iPhone 5S.

This is inline with Apple’s rumored plan of releasing new iPhone models in the next 3 months. Apple is also trying to increase production capacity and avoid any delays in shipment just like what happened with the iPhone 5 late last year.

Foxconn is Apple’s main partner and supplier which has produced millions of iOS gadgets over the past few years.

The plant that will see the highest number of recruitment is the one in Zhengzhou, in the Eastern part of China.

“Workers have been recruited at Foxconn’s plant in Zhengzhou, eastern China, for the past month, ending a hiring freeze imposed in February,” said the person, who asked not to be named because the plans haven’t been made public. “The extra workers will assemble the new device as well as existing models and have been added at Apple’s request to boost capacity,” the person said.

It was reported that approximately 10,000 new Chinese workers have been added every week since the recruitment started.

Of course, in the next few months or so, we’ll start reading and hearing rumors on the new iPhone(s) again, which eventually will become true, just like the previous two iPhone models.

Predictable again? Hope not.
