The actual number of iPhone 6 units to be produced at the Pegatron facility in Kunshan is unknown. Keeping that in mind, the number of new workers that the factory is looking to hire is also unknown. Pegatron and Hon Hai Precision Industry (Foxconn), both based in Taiwan, will be the two primary manufacturers of the next-generation Apple iPhone.
On Monday, we passed along word from analysts at ISI who forecast, like many others do, that Apple will be releasing two phones this year. One, a 4.7 inch device, will be the Apple iPhone 6. The other mode, carrying a 5.5 inch glass, will be a phablet version of the Apple iPhone.
