The production of the next iPhone from Apple is underway, and the companies that manufacture the device are in the middle of a massive hiring spree to keep up with the demanded production.
According to a report from Reuters, Hon Hai Precision Industry is set to hire over 100,000 new workers to the company in order to help build the iPhone 6. The hiring spree is reportedly the firm’s largest ever such event in China.
Another manufacturer, Pegatron Crop, will also be expanding its workforce in China by 30 percent to keep up with the high demand for the iPhone 6. According to the report, Hon Hai will build 70 percent on the iPhones that will be ordered this year, while Pegatron will produce the other 30.
There has been no word as to whether the increase in production staff has to do with rumors that Apple is planning on launching two versions of its newest iPhone this year, or if the demand for the single model will be so high that it will require more staff. Recent reports have stated that Apple will launch a 4.7-inch iPhone 6 this fall, with a 5.5-inch device releasing worldwide later this year.
Apple has declined comment on the report.
