Apple usually releases new iPhone models in September each year. iPhone 13 series will likely be released next month. This makes its assemblers and components manufacturers recruit a large number of employees to meet the production of the upcoming iPhone series since it is very tight.
One of the manufacturers is Foxconn which hired a large number of people for the iPhone 11 in July 2019, and later on the iPhone 12 back in 2020. Today, Foxconn is offering a bonus of USD 1,575 to new employees who worked for at least 90 days. This is USD 31 more than the bonus provided by Foxconn this past July. The employee gets USD 1,467 while the introducer gets the rest.
At the same time, another company, Lens Technology, increased its bonus too. Last February they offered USD 772 to new employees. But, since May, the income increased to USD 1,544 which is similar to Foxconn.
Luxshare Precision recently received Apple’s first “iPhone 13” related order. The company is doubling its commission for their employees recommending friends or other people to hire. For former workers returning back from other companies, they offer a bonus of USD 587.
It is reported that the new iPhone 13 will be released in September. The iPhone 12 released 75 million last year, the iPhone 13 has increased by 15 million units and will be around 90 million units by the end of 2021, with the demand increasing by 20%.

Foxconn will still undertake most of the business, including all the Pro Max, 68% of iPhone 13, and nearly 60% of the Pro model. Pegatron will assemble all the mini models and 32% of the iPhone 13. The remaining 40% of the Pro models will be handed over to Luxshare Precision.
Looking at the data in the summary database, Apple has added models such as A2628, A2630, A2634, A2635, A2640, A2643, and A2645. The corresponding models should be iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. The indication is that these models are running the iOS 15 system.
We see that Apple depends on more Chinese suppliers than ever before. iPhone is becoming more “Chinese” than ever. In fact, the iPhone you are holding in your hands presently has at least one component from China. In addition, there is also a high chance that the iPhone you are using was assembled in China.
