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.

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