AIR CARGO commodity – the iPhone 6 – goes into production next month ready for a potential September launch, writes Nigel Tomkins, managing director.

Foxconn, the Asian company that handles the bulk of Apple's manufacturing, has been on a gigantic hiring spree for the iPhone 6, according to Taiwanese newspaper reports. Foxconn is said to be adding up to 100,000 new employees, a record according to reports. The manufacturer has often increased its workforce ahead of a new iPhone launch.

The iPhone 6 is expected to go into production next month, and could be out in September.

Apple is reportedly releasing two models. One will have a 4.7-inch screen, the other a 5.5-inch screen.

The iPhone 5 currently has a 4-inch screen. Analysts expect Apple's iPhone 6 sales to be gigantic.

For years, Android ‘phones have had bigger screens than the iPhone.

It is expected that the iPhone 6 will be extremely popular and will generate a lot of air cargo demand.
