Apple’s iPhone 5 is already in short supply due to the huger demand for the handset, and now it is possibly that there could be even more shortages of the iPhone 5, as staff at the factory in China which produce the iPhone 5 have walked out.
Foxconn have been forced to halt production of the iPhone 5, as staff are now protesting against working conditions at the factory, this is something that has come under criticism in the past, although Apple looked into the working conditions and reported that they were satisfactory.
The workers have walked out because they say that the demands placed on them are too high, and according to the Telegraph workers have become frustrated trying to prevent scratches on the iPhone 5 casing whilst the devices are being assembled.
There have been a number of reports by owners of the new iPhone 5 that the back casing is easy to scratch, and some have en reported that they have come with scratches on them out of the box, it isn’t clear how long the workers will be striking for or how this will affect the supply of the iPhone 5.
