If you want to buy an iPhone 5 right now, you will have to wait around three – four weeks. The reason? Well the demand for the iPhone 5 is simply overwhelming the supply. Now you would be wondering why is the supply so low? Well Foxconn has the answer. iPhone 5 is the hardest device to make!
When iPhone 5 came out, many people were anxious to try it out. To see what Apple has been cooking for them all these months. To some it was a disappointment but to others it was ground breaking. Even the ones you loved the iPhone mentioned a big problem. Scuffgate. iPhone 5 has a very bad problem and that is, it can get many scratches, thus the name Scuffgate.
Apple is trying is best to make sure that iPhone 5′s which are shipping right out of the factory do not have scratches on them, therefor, increasing the quality standards of the product. If you remember Apple asked the quality to increase substantially which caused riots and fights at a Foxconn factory.
The increase in quality of iPhone 5 has caused a supply shortage.
According to Foxconn, iPhone 5 is the hardest device they have ever made:
“The iPhone 5 is the most difficult device that Foxconn has ever assembled. To make it light and thin, the design is very complicated,… It takes time to learn how to make this new device. Practice makes perfect. Our productivity has been improving day by day.”
There are other things that make the iPhone 5 the hardest device to make and one of the factors is that; iPhone 5 is being made in a new factory which was opened in 2011. The new machinery and the new product makes it hard for workers to easily get trained.
With more time, iPhone 5 supply shortage will slowly finish and it will be available for everyone to buy.
