OK so maybe there is a low budget iPhone on the way!


So I've been very skeptical about a "Budget" iPhone but the evidence is starting to mount against me. The latest being from a report from labor rights group China Labor Watch.

The report makes claims of poor working conditions at Apple's assembly partner Pegatron and includes a paragraph in which a worker describes her day:

"Today’s work is to paste protective film on the iPhone’s plastic back cover to prevent it from being scratched on assembly lines. This iPhone model with a plastic cover will soon be released on the market by Apple. The task is pretty easy, and I was able to work independently after a five-minute instruction from a veteran employee. It took around a minute to paste protective film on one rear cover. The new cell phone has not yet been put into mass production, so quantity is not as important. This makes our job more slow paced than in departments that have begun mass production schedules."

What do you think?
