Foxconn begins hiring for production of Apple’s iPhone 14 at its Zhengzhou plant


Apple iPhone models continue to be assembled on the Chinese mainland by Hon Hai Precision Industry (Foxconn), commonly known as Foxconn. According to an article in the Economic Daily News on Monday, Apple has asked Zhengzhou to begin recruiting two months in advance, plan for shipments, and avoid any impact from local lockdowns or supply chain issues.

According to the report, individuals who are close to Foxconn believe that because of Apple’s current production capacity concerns, the stocking of the iPhone 14 series this year is at least two months ahead of schedule. Additionally, it is estimated that the stocking volume of the iPhone 14 will be higher than that of the 30 million iPhone 13 units this year in order to cope with sudden supply chain risks.

A bonus of 5,500 yuan ($827) was offered to job seekers at the Foxconn iDPBG Zhengzhou Factory, which is the company’s largest iPhone assembly plant.

Hiring began immediately after the factory in Zhengzhou was reopened following a pandemic-induced closure. People connected to Foxconn, according to the Chinese media site Sina, have said that several manufacturers are facing uncertainties and that many Apple orders have been relocated to the Zhengzhou factory this year because of the pandemic.

According to sources, even though Apple actively encourages the foreign layout of its OEM partners, including in India and Vietnam, the operations and manufacturing in locations outside of China still need to be modified.
