Ever since Apple introduced its newest phone, the iPhone 5s, demand has exceeded production. Apple’s Chinese manufacturing partner, Foxconn, responded by dedicating 100 assembly lines operating 24 hours a day solely to producing the phone. Pretty impressive.

More than 300,000 employees at Foxconn’s Zhengzhou, China factory are working exclusively on iPhone 5s production, reports The Wall Street Journal. The production increase appears to have significantly eased supply constraints — yesterday, AppleInsider noted research from Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster suggesting that more than 90 percent of iPhone 5s SKUs were available in retail channels, indicating that Apple’s supply chain has nearly caught up with market demand.
