RumorTT: Foxconn hiring 90,000 workers to prepare for iPhone 5S

RumorTT: 90,000 extra workers required at Foxconn to prepare for iPhone 5S launch

We've heard so many whispers when it comes to the iPhone 5S, but according to unnamed sources of Focus Taiwan, Foxconn are now hiring 90,000 new workers for their Shenzhen production facility to help them fill "massive orders from Apple" that will include both the iPhone 5S and the new budget iPhone.




The iPhone 5S is rumored to feature an A7 processor, improved graphics, 2GB of RAM and a 12-megapixel camera with a dual-LED flash. We should also expect it to arrive with iOS 7 by default. I'm hoping that we see a departure from the boring design of the iPhone, and something refreshing, and new. I know I'm asking for too much, and we'll just get a slightly better iPhone 5.


The budget iPhone on the other hand, which has been rumored to be named the "iPhone 5C" would feature a 4-inch display (like the older iPhones), 1GB of RAM, and a plastic case that comes in multiple colors.
