This morning, China Business News is reporting that Foxconn has began recruiting on a large scale for new workers in preparations for the manufacturing ramp-up of both of Apple's new iPhones. They're reporting that recruiters in Zhengzhou in the Henan province of China have been seeking out skilled labor on a massive scale.

The Foxconn facility in Zhengzhou reportedly has capacity for an additional 90,000 workers which would bring it back up to its 300,000 workers we saw back during the 2012 holiday season. If last year's demand for the iPhone 5 and iPad mini are any indication of how this year's iPhone 5S and low-cost iPhone sales will go, it makes sense that Foxconn bolster its labor force sooner than later.

 

In addition to the two new iPhones, the company is expected to also release updated versions of its iPad and iPad mini and some analysts even expect a newer model of Apple TV to be released just before the holiday season.
