In Apple's online stores, especially in major markets like the U.S. and China, last month useres ended up waiting up to three weeks to have their iPhone 5S delivered. In order to shorten delivery times, Apple requested from Foxconn to significantly increase production capacity for their flagship mobile phone, on account of lower production of the desired model 5C.

Thus, this manufacturer is currently pushing out as many as 500,000 units of the iPhone 5S from their manufacturing facility, which is a record number for them. To explain the complexity of the manufacturing process, the Foxconn made a public statement that the production lines for model 5C employs about 500 people, just as it was for the previous model iPhone 5, while for the iPhone 5S they have around 600 workers at the production line, since the process of manufacture and assembly is more demanding.

Foxconn currently employs around 300,000 workers on the production of the lastest iPhone 5S.
