Apple has a 3-5 business day shipping time on the iPhone 5S, which is much better than the 2-3 week wait from last month. Foxconn hires around 300,000 workers at its Zhengzhou site, which is dedicated to manufacturing the iPhone 5S, and some of its most key components. The Journal's source, who was an "executive who declined to be named", said: "we have been churning out about 500,000 iPhone 5Ss everyday, the highest daily output ever."
