Foxconn reportedly hiring 100,000 new workers to assist with iPhone 6 production
iPhone manufacturing partner Foxconn is in the process of hiring 100,000 new workers in order to ramp up iPhone 6 production, according to a new report from Taiwanese Economic Daily. Another iPhone manufacturer, Pegatron, is also said to be ramping up hiring in anticipation of the new smartphone.
Hiring frenzies like this are not uncommon as new iPhone models prepare to enter production, but in the case of Foxconn the figure represents a new record number of jobs.
According to the report, Foxconn is reportedly responsible for producing 70% of iPhone 6 orders. The report claims that the device will enter mass production in July. Leaked dummies have already given us an idea of what the phone will look like, including the LCD for the rumored 5.5-inch model.
As has been previously reported, two models of the iPhone 6 are expected to go on sale later this year. The smaller 4.7″ display will reportedly be available around September, while the larger 5.5″ version will be delayed.
From do you get this info? Based on your link there is no such delay. who cares who are the suppliers you need some reading understanding but nice try bashy
“Investment firm J.P. Morgan became the latest to increase its price target for Apple stock on Tuesday, projecting that the company will be propelled to $108 per share thanks in part to this year’s anticipated ‘iPhone 6′ launch,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
“Analyst Rod Hall issued a new note to investors, a copy of which was provided to AppleInsider, to lay the case that shares of AAPL are likely to see earnings grow beyond current expectations on Wall Street,” Hughes reports. “Hall’s estimate is up from his previous target of $89, which has been underwater for some time. His new price target of $108 calls for Apple to reach that goal by the end of 2015.”Hughes reports, “J.P. Morgan was the second investment firm to raise its price target on Apple on Tuesday, joining Needham & Company, which increased its forecast to $97.”
“Already on track to capture nearly half of the smartphone market in 2014, Apple could dramatically expand the iPhone’s customer base at Android’s expense by adding a new model with a larger display, according to a survey released Tuesday by the investment arm of the Royal Bank of Canada,” Sam Oliver reprots for AppleInsider.
“After speaking with some 4,000 consumers, RBC Capital Markets found that of those planning to purchase a smartphone from Apple’s rivals this year, 35 percent would instead choose an iPhone if they could have a display larger than the 4-inch part found on the iPhone 5 series,” Oliver reports. “The numbers were revealed in a note to investors from RBC analyst Amit Daryanani.”Oliver reports, “74 percent of those polled are aware of Apple’s upcoming iPhone refresh, and 40 percent said that a new generation of hardware would prod them to change devices.”

Samsung CFO admits quarterly results to be ‘not that good’
Wednesday, June 25, 2014 · 1:56 pm · 1 Comment
“Patently Apple has been consistently reporting on the myth that Samsung’s S5 is a smash hit in various reports since April. Our most recent report posted last week was titled ‘Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is Confirmed a Dud & May Hurt Financials,’” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.“According to the Financial Times today, ‘Samsung Electronics has turned bearish on its second-quarter performance, with its chief financial officer saying he expects results to be ‘not that good’ as rising competition stifles profit growth at the mobile division,’” Purcher reports. “The downbeat comments made on Wednesday by Lee Sang-hoon, made to local media reporters on the way to a meeting and later confirmed by Samsung, stoked concerns that earnings may be worse than market consensus.”Purcher reports, “CW Chung, an analyst at Nomura stated that ‘There must have been some adverse effects from the stronger won and its smartphones and tablets don’t seem to be selling as well as Samsung had hoped.’
“Samsung launched its flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone in April along with up to $600 in freebies, the first time it had offered incentives for its best-selling series of devices,” Song Jung-a reports for The Financial Times. “But the company is expected to face intensifying competition in the premium market with Apple set to launch a larger-screen iPhone in the next few months.
“Samsung plans to give guidance for the second quarter between July 7 and July 9,” Song reports. “IBK Securities estimates Samsung’s smartphone shipments fell to 78m units, from 87.5m units in the first quarter. Worryingly, analysts reckon the weakening performance of the mobile unit could have a knock-on effect on other businesses given the company’s vertically integrated structure.”
