Even to this day, workers are continuing to learn how to manufacture the smartphones to meet Apple's increasingly high standards. WSJ's anonymous Foxconn official continued stating that the iPhone 5 "uses a new coating material which makes it more susceptible to scratching", which in turn makes it harder to meet quality checks.
