    Default Another Foxconn Employee Speaks on Next iPhone Release, Contradicts Earlier Claims


    According to an article in the Maeil Business Newspaper a Foxconn employee leaked information claiming the new iPhone will be released in October.

    According to the article, the newspaper contacted the chief of human resources at Foxconn’s facility in Taiyuan, China to ask about hiring and future iPhone production plans. The employee than disclosed that the company just received an order from Apple for the iPhone 5 ahead of an expected launch date “around October.”

    According to a recently published article, the paper asked the head of human resources at Foxconn's Taiyuan factory about the iPhone 5 release date. The human resources head apparently told the paper, "We just got the order. It [the release] will be around October." — Kotaku
    This report of course contradicts a report last week in which a Foxconn recruiter claimed the next iPhone was slated for a June release. However, the one thing the two do agree on is Foxconn is on an all out hiring spree so the company can fulfill Apple’s order. It seems odd that the head of HR at Foxconn would throw out bold and specific claims of this nature. Surely an individual in this position would understand Apples obsession with security.

    Oddly enough, when the newspaper attempted to follow up with Foxconn’s head of public relations they were told the PR head was “on vacation” and unable to comment.

    I put no stock on lowly employee leaking info on release dates...
    If it is in October it would be perfect for me, my 2 year contract is up on 09/15!! Enough time to get my iPhone 4 unlocked then maybe switch service provider.

    Could I get in the news if I tell you that the iPhone is coming out February 30th? No.

    Who really cares when the new iPhone will be coming out? I mean not that it isn't important and people don't plan vacations and child births around it, but frankly I don't care.
