Apple CEO Tim Cook visits Foxconn's manufacturing factory in China
Apple CEO, Tim Cook paid a visit to one of Foxconn’s factories during his business trip to China.
The tech CEO posted a picture of himself at the factory on Twitter. According to Cook, the photo shows a portion of the assembly line for the iPhone 6 in Zhengzhou, where Foxconn, Apple’s largest manufacturing partner, operates one of its key factories.
It is thought that Cook visited the plant to personally check on the production progress of the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, demand for which has been “far outstripping” supply.
The iPhone 6 Plus is said to have been in greater demand since the new handsets’ launch in China on October 17, reportedly prompting Apple to shift production away from the iPhone 6 in favor of the larger phablet-style iPhone.
As reported earlier today, Cook is in China to meet with Vice Premier Ma Kai in Zhongnanhai, at China’s central government, to discuss data security following reports of iCloud cyber attacks and phishing incidents in the country.
