This is how our iPhones and iPads are made.

ABC News’ Bill Weir was recently sent to Apple’s Foxconn manufacturing plant in China to get an inside look at how one of the most popular smartphones and tablets are made in the world. What follows is not an educational tour of how iPhones and iPads are made, but a more sobering look at the working conditions of the infamous Foxconn company.


The report doesn’t provide an in depth look at the problems workers face at Foxconn, but it still gives a glimpse of the general opinion of the people working there and how both the management and the workers themselves feel.


From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
