Foxconn assembles the iPhone and iPads for Apple as we all know. The company is adding an additional inspection point to its line to keep quality up. Foxconn is said to be adding X-Ray inspection to its assembly lines. A person claiming to have knowledge of the new edition claims that the company is purchasing machines in unprecedented quantities.
It’s not clear right now this is good or bad, Foxconn may be trying to produce the iOS devices with less defects. Foxconn could also be reducing workers by automating some inspections. The machines will inspect printed circuit boards and soldered joints. A new report is claiming that iOS is three times faster in HTML 5 performance than Android.
The tip comes from a company called Spaceport. Different platforms were tested by the company using its PerfMarks report. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus was able to show 100 objects on the screen at once. The iPhone 4S is able to show 200 objects at once in the iPad 2 showed 300 at once.
