According to the latest report from a Chinese website Jiemian, Foxconn robots, which were designed to assemble Apple's iPhones, are currently not precise enough to cope with that task. However, this doesn't mean that they won't ever be used in the production of the smartphones. They can substitute human workers after Foxconn solves the problems Apple found.
Apple’s iPhones may be soon manufactured by Google robots. According to what The Wall Street Journal writes, the search giant is currently working with Foxconn on automating assembly lines at its factories. Foxconn chairman “expressed excitement over new automation technologies”, so looks like both companies will soon become close business partners.
Gizmodo managed to obtain a complete copy of manual for Apples’s Genius training program. The manual describes the two-week training new Geniuses go through, along with detailed information on how to handle customer service issues, how to empathize with customers to build a relationship, recognizing body language and other cues to help understand each customer's emotions and guide the interaction to a resolution.
Do you remember the robot called T-1000 Skynet made of liquid metal in the film Terminator 2? It seems that Steve Jobs decided to create devices of next generation using Liquidmetal Technologies, a California company from which Apple has recently acquired the exclusive rights for creation of liquid metal alloy products.
One of the best and most distinctive factors in all Apple products is how this company produces its own devices, the quality of production, as well as the materials used, which, undoubtedly, have first-class quality.
Now that Apple has the exclusive rights to create products of the liquid metal, we can assume that it has no plans to create a robot for the next Terminator movie, but probably will use it for such devices as iMac, iPad and iPhone of the next generation in order to be one step ahead of its competitors.
This is a robot capable of playing Rock Band iPhone application. The setup is pretty much the same as the other robots that play these kinds of games.

A robot hobbyist has developed an application that lets the iPhone 3GS function as the brain and face of a miniature humanoid robot.
The body of the robot — named “Robochan” — consists of a Kondo KHR-2HV humanoid. The iPhone head, which attaches to the body via the dock connector, displays various facial expressions while functioning as the controller. Using Robochan’s iPhone interface, the user can program it to function as an alarm clock, dance to music, and perform other moves based on user interaction.
