Foxconn CEO Said They Are Falling Short Of iPhone 5 Demand

According to Reuter’s report, Foxconn CEO Terry Gou acknowledged that they are struggling to keep up with an enormous demand for the iPhone 5. He said:

"It's not easy to make the iPhones. We are falling short of meeting the huge demand”.

Reuters also said that he declined to comment on reports stating that the other unit of the group, Foxconn International Holdings, which usually assembles non-Apple devices, had taken on part of the production.

In a separate report, The Wall Street Journal said that Gou told reporters that his company is shipping "far fewer" new iPhones than Apple has ordered. He declined to specify which of the device’s features caused production issues and when Foxconn will solve those issues.

Availability of the iPhone continues to be tight about six weeks after its launch, with Apple’s online stores quoting shipping estimates of 3-4 weeks and lines forming at some retail stores every day as customers seek out available devices.
