Apple’s manufacturing partner Foxconn has reportedly resumed hiring after a brief freeze as the company prepares to ramp up production of Apple’s next-generation iPhone. Foxconn reportedly froze hiring this past February as Apple trimmed iPhone production in preparation for its upcoming new flagship smartphone. Now, as the new handset’s launch presumably nears, Bloomberg reports that Foxconn has resumed hiring. The “iPhone 5S” is expected to be unveiled this summer and should closely resemble the current iPhone 5, though rumors suggest it will feature an upgraded processor, an improved rear camera, several new color options and possibly an integrated fingerprint scanner as well.
