Friday marked the release of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, as you probably knew from the throngs of people wrapped around your local Apple retailer and the burst of bragging in your social feeds. According to E! Online, hopping on Twitter was among the first activities for those who managed to hang onto their devices. But what were all these new phones up to before they were supporting our social media habits?
CompareCamp.com has put together an infographic that reveals the entire journey of the iPhone 6 models, and the process is pretty impressive.
Here’s a look at a few of the more staggering numbers:
- A total of 31 countries supplied parts for the iPhone 5.
- More than 1 million employees worked a maximum of 50 hours a week to assemble the phones.
- Extra assistance was provided to 10,000 “Foxbot” robots who assembled roughly 30,000 phones apiece. Robots are slowly replacing workers in Apples notorious Foxconn factory.
