iPhone 6 rumors: Foxconn robots will only assist humans

iPhone 6 concept

A recent report claimed that Apple’s partner will be equipped with 10,000 robots for manufacturing the smartphone.

However, it turns out that that the machines will be there as a support to humans and not as substitutes.

According to Taiwan’s United Daily News, the “Foxbots” will take care of routine tasks such as tightening screws or polishing components.

The most important operations, such as the final assembly and quality control will remain purely human functions.

The manufacturer hopes that these 10,000 robots will increase the production efficiency and accelerate the output of the plant.
