Foxconn is running its production lines 24 hours a day to produce new iPhone 12 units for Apple, according to the South China Morning Post. Foxconn has reportedly cancelled workers' holidays and introduced mandatory overtime with enticing bonuses to keep production on schedule.

The all-hands-on-deck approach at Foxconn’s massive Zhengzhou factory reflects China’s resilient manufacturing capabilities and deep connection between the Chinese and US economies, despite a push from Washington for decoupling. China’s quick recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, especially on the production side of the economy, is expected to help it continue its central position in global value chains, even though the virus has renewed talk about the dangers of supply chain dependence on the world’s second largest economy.

Production at Foxconn's plant in Henan province resumed in February and overtime work has increased since summer.

“You can earn 5,000 yuan to 6,000 yuan (US$880) per month, and if you work at the factory for more than 90 days, there’s a handsome amount of special pay,” said a worker who has worked at the factory for over four years.

Another employee confirmed that night shifts were started so production lines would keep running 24 hours a day.

“We have been kept so busy for the past weeks because of the iPhone 12.”

Apple is expected to unveil four new iPhone 12 models with 5G support on October 13th. They will likely include a 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini, 6.1-inch iPhone 12, 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone Pro Max.
