He added that Foxconn is hiring about 18,000 workers to kick production of the new smartphone into high gear before summer. The reporters from TV Tokyo met with the Foxconn recruiter at Foxconn's plant in Taiyuan, China, which currently employs about 80,000 workers. Previous reports also said Apple would release its next iPhone in June: Reuters reported in March that Apple plans to unveil the next iPhone "around the second quarter" of 2012."
