I’m pretty sure you’ve wondered how many iPhones are produced in a day by Apple. Now we have the answer.
This answer comes official from Foxconn “we have been churning out about 500,000 iPhone 5s every day”. With this huge number of parts, Apple can deliver now the new iPhone 5s in only 3-4 days after a person ordered one part.
This increase of production comes after the large number of requests from consumers and because in only few days we have the Black Friday event, and also December is the month of most that shopping carts are full, no?
Also for all other iPhone 5-series we have some numbers about production per day. For iPhone 5c and iPhone 5, the production is less, but still pretty impressive, 300,000 parts per day (208 per minute). On this production line, works about 500 persons, less than the line for 5s, because “the assembly procedure is less complicated”.
If you don’t know, Foxconn is the first largest producer of Apple parts. This iPhone 5s are made at the factory in Zhengzhou, China. On this site, Foxconn prepares parts like cases and components.
