Foxconn admits the iPhone 5 is the most difficult device it has put together
An unnamed source has allegedly told the WSJ that the iPhone 5 is the most difficult device Foxconn has ever assembled. Apparently, the parts of the new handset are susceptible to damage in pretty much all stages of the assembly process, which makes it incredibly hard to come up with a flawless end product.

Some users are already aware of that as they have found scratches and other imperfections on their otherwise brand new handsets. Due to the higher probability of build quality issues during the production process, Foxconn has had to implement a new quality control system to ensure that as many parts as possible will make it to the end of the process. Interestingly, the source mentions that it was this new quality check that has caused the strike we told you about last week.

Foxconn expects that the quality standard of the iPhone 5 is already improving, and will continue to improve with time.
