Foxconn: Nightline goes behind the scenes at Apple assembly line in China
The full content of the Nightline program in which ABC’s Bill Neil got unrestricted access to Apple’s assembly company, Foxconn, in China has been put on YouTube – although it’s not yet available in full on the official Nightline channel.
The full 15-minute video opens with the drive into the factory in the night – and then during the day to the facility where iPads, iPhones and iPods have their final assembly.
Intel, Nintendo, Dell and others are mentioned as perhaps working on ”secret new inventions” – but that is not confirmed. Foxconn keeps its secrets.
The video will show, says Neil: “How they build the world’s most popular objects of desire.” Reaching the assembly line requires “air showers” while wearing a static suit to prevent dust contaminating the production line.
