Video report offers a rare glimpse inside the Foxconn factory assembling the iPhone
CEO Terry Gou gave a personal tour of his Foxconn factory in Zhengzhou, where 70% of all iPhones and other Apple gadgets are made, for Chinese reporters, resulting in the rare video glimpse of real production lines assembling real iPhones.

The plant is the largest in this industrial area, with its 2.1 square miles and accommodation for 115, 000 workers. We see how the making of the exterior frame is done, as well as the assembly lines that stack up the other components in there, like the motherboard and the screen layers.

Unfortunately you've got to brush up on your Mandarin to get every word in there, but the video is pretty self-explanatory, and might be your only chance to see a Foxconn factory from the flamboyant CEO's chopper, and tour the iPhone assembly lines as they are firing on all cylinders.

I do not think this is video is where they are making the Iphone 4S product but I could be wrong.

Apple Company doesn't pay these chinese people minium wage which is very sad to be honest with you That's one of the main reasons I decided to move away from apple products and never support their service ever again.

Apple is huge company if Steve Jobs is still around he wouldn't agree to this method.
