Apple should start production of the iPhone 14 line before the usual calendar. Fearing new lockdowns due to Covid-19 in China, the brand asked its partner Foxconn to start recruiting workers to assemble the devices.
According to China’s United Daily News, Foxconn began a major recruitment drive for workers to assemble the new iPhone 14 models earlier than usual due to fears that lockdowns in China could cause supply shortages that could lead to problems with customers. manufacturing at the end of the year.
Honghai’s main iPhone production base (2317) and Zhengzhou Foxconn iDPBG enterprise group’s mainland factory launched a large recruitment this week, and the bonus greatly increased by 30%, attracting a lot of people.

This type of recruitment is common in companies like Foxconn. The first-quarter sales of a new iPhone is the quarter in which more iPhones are sold, so the companies in charge of assembling the iPhone need extra labor for a few months. And now Apple wants these hiring to start as soon as possible.
Foxconn usually offers a recruitment bonus of around $984 to workers who stay on the job for at least 90 days, but with this increase, the factory is now offering $1,286. It may seem like a small raise, but it far exceeds a month’s average salary.
