[b]Manufacturer has said that latest iPhone is the "most difficult device" it has assembled.[/b]

The iPhone 5 is set to experience further delays in reaching consumers as Apple's main manufacturing partner, Foxconn, has admitted that it's failing to meet the firm's production demands for the smartphone.

According to the manufacturer's chairman Terry Gou, Foxconn simply can't make them fast enough. "It's not easy to make the iPhones," he stated. "We are falling short of meeting the huge demand."

While he didn't specify which model is proving to warrant such a demand, it's undoubtedly the latest iPhone model, especially when you consider [url="http://www.tomshardware.com/news/iPhone-5-Apple-Supply-Revenue,18463.html"]previous reports of the smartphone's production delays[/url].

Last month, an anonymous Foxconn worker [url="http://www.tomshardware.com/news/iPhone-5-Foxconn-Supply-Apple,18507.html"]stressed that assembling the iPhone 5 was "very complicated"[/url]. The firm described the handset as "the most difficult device that Foxconn has ever assembled."

With the iPhone 5 being taller and slimmer than the iPhone 4S via a 4-inch screen, as well as having a smaller dock connector, an unnamed worker told the Wall Street Journal that "It takes time to learn how to make this new device. Practice makes perfect. Our productivity has been improving day by day."

You can only wonder what the toll on quality is like.
This is why I wait for the "S" model before I consider upgrading.

They design their phones so that it takes forever to replace a broken screen. The 4 and 4s had glued the digitizer to the lcd so that you couldn't just replace the digitizer for
