Apple is going to launch its iPhone 13 series later this year. To meet the demand, the company has directed its suppliers to ramp up their iPhone production.
Apple suppliers in China are hiring many new workers ahead of the iPhone 13 lineup. For this, the suppliers are giving record bonus to the new employees. These employees are being hired for manufacturing plants. The companies that are offering bonus are Foxconn, Lens Technology and Luxshare Precision. These three big companies are the suppliers of Apple. This new trend of companies has been disclosed by the South China Morning Post. According to the report, Foxconn’s factory in the central Chinese city of Zhengzhou is now offering a record bonus of 10,200 yuan (Rs 1.16 lakh) for new hiring. The company, which produces an estimated 80 percent of the world’s iPhones, has said it will offer bonuses if new workers stay at its iPhone assembly plant for at least 90 days.
The bonus amount will be divided between the new employee and the person who refers them. Integrated Digital Products Business Group or iDPBG workers will receive 9500 yuan while the remaining 700 yuan will be given to their referrer. The company disclosed this in a new recruitment post last week. In addition to Foxconn, Lens Technology, the company that provides touch screens to Apple, has also started similar recruitment plans. The company is planning to recruit 5,000 employees for its product lines. In addition, 2,000 more people will be appointed as quality inspectors. The bonus for both the roles has now been doubled through the firm.
While Lens Technology used to offer 5,000 yuan (Rs 57,000) as a bonus to its employees in February, it increased to 10,000 yuan (Rs 1.14 lakh) in May. Those who have worked with the firm for more than 20 days and for seven months will be eligible for the bonus.
Luxshare Precision is yet another Apple supplier with a similar hiring boost. From April to May, the company increased its internal referral bonus from 2,500 Yuan (Rs 28,600) to 5,000 Yuan. In addition, it announced a top-up bonus of 3,800 yuan (Rs 43,500) for its former employees returning to the company.
Due to launch in the fall this year, there is a renewed focus on expanding the workforce to meet the expected demands of the iPhone 13 series. Apple is expected to ship over 130 million new iPhone units within 2021. If orders are as per the expected numbers, Apple’s current production facility will only partially allow the company to meet the demand for iPhone 13 models this year. To avoid this, the company has asked its suppliers to increase the production of iPhone.
The iPhone 13 series series is going to be launched here in September. Apple will ship 130 million units of the iPhone here by the end of the year.
