Apple in the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 sold about 43.7 million units iPhone, Foxconn, which makes Apple became the biggest customer. If this project is completed, then you do not need to use Foxconn workers to assemble the device, each robot can be responsible for an average of 30,000 devices. Gou said the robot named "Foxbots", and said they would not sell these robots, because they themselves had not enough.
Foxconn will apparently deploy at least 10,000 Foxbots per Foxconn factory, and each robot will cost 20,000 to 25,000 U.S. dollars.
Notably, a recent report said that Foxconn is hiring over 100,000 additional workers in mainland China to help produce the iPhone 6. It's believed to be the firm's largest ever single hiring spree in the country.
