Apple admits student interns worked illegal hours on iPhone X production line

They have acknowledged that some cases of student interns working overtime do exist and they're looking into measures to ensure that this doesn't happen again.

The students, who range in age from 17 to 19, have reportedly been required to work at the plants in order to complete a "work experience" graduation requirement. Ms Yang said she assembled about 1,200 iPhone X cameras a day. According to Chinese law, high school students are not allowed to work that many hours.

Apple admitted it found "instances of student interns working overtime at a supplier facility in China", and said "we've confirmed the students worked voluntarily, were compensated and provided benefits, but they should not have been allowed to work overtime", according to the report.

"This work has nothing to do with our studies".

Foxconn is Apple's primary supplier in Asia.

While certainly damning, the report also highlights the need for Apple and its partners to implement additional measures to protect their workers.

The flagship iPhone X, priced at $999 - Apple's most expensive smartphone to date - marked the 10th anniversary of the company's first iPhone release.

In its statement, Foxconn said, "All work was voluntary and compensated appropriately, [but] the interns did work overtime in violation of our policy". Based on Apple's actions, Qiang said, it seems like they don't care about the labor standards they set previously.

Six of them told The Financial Times that they routinely worked 11-hour days, which is illegal under Chinese law.

Foxconn says its internship program involved cooperation "with local governments and a number of vocational schools".

Apple did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation's request for comment by time of publication.

"Apple actually knew about this a couple of weeks ago, however they haven't resolved the issue yet", Qiang added. They were sent to work at the factory run by Foxconn Technology Group, an Apple supplier, in September. According to its 2017 Supplier Responsibility report, Apple only found one underage worker-"a 15½ year old" where the legal working age is 16-in its supply chain audit, and the company moved quickly to address it. Today, the Financial Times reports that illegal labour practices persist.
