Apple making 800,000 iPhones a week

 

Apple is currently asking its Taiwanese assembly plant to churn out 800,000 iPhones every week according to Tech Crunch.

Foxconn the company which puts together the extraordinarily popular handset is currently working "above full capacity" leading to fears that there may be problems with quality control.

Reports earlier this week have already voiced concerns over the quality of case mouldings in some models, mainly the white version.

Apple sold six million first generation iPhones in just over a year.

If Foxconn continue to churn the Second Coming of Mobile Telecoms handsets at its current rate, it will produce over 40 million units in the first year alone, smashing expectations.
