Speaking at a business forum on Tuesday, Foxconn CEO Terry Gou has acknowledged the difficulties in assembling enough devices to keep up with Apple’s requirements.

“It’s not easy to make the iPhones,” Gou said, as cited by Reuters. “We are falling short of meeting the huge demand.”

Last month we reported that Apple has been hit with manufacturing delays regarding its latest smartphone.

Apparently, the reason for this is that Foxconn is experiencing problems in the manufacturing process.

An executive told the Wall Street Journal at the time that, “the iPhone 5 is the most difficult device that Foxconn has ever assembled.”

“To make it light and thin, the design is very complicated. It takes time to learn how to make this new device. Practice makes perfect. Our productivity has been improving every day.”

A recent Wall Street Journal report quoted Gou as saying that Foxconn is shipping “far fewer” iPhones than Apple has requested due to quality control issues.
