iPhone 6 concept

New information published on The Wall Street Journal says that the company is hiring engineers in its Asian team, from HTC, Inventec and other Taiwanese firms.

Apple’s teams from China and Taiwan get new employees, their role being that of completing the development of the new iPhone with a larger screen.

“Apple is building an engineering team in Taipei to drive new iPhone product development,” a recruiting email from Apple and obtained by The Wall Street Journal read.

In addition, Apple is also said to be working on reducing the periods of time between releases of new iPhones. Apple currently has over 600 employees on its China team, with most of them working on the development of new iPhones and other products.

In a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, Tim Cook hinted at bigger iPhone models that could be in the works.

“What we’ve said is that until the technology is ready, we don’t want to cross that line,” Cook said. “That doesn’t say we’ll never do it. We want to give our customers what’s right in all respects – not just the size but in the resolution, in the clarity, in the contrast, in the reliability. There are many different parameters to measure a display and we care about all those, because we know that’s the window to the software.”
