iPhone 5 rumours picked up a couple of notches today after a Foxconn recruiter let slip that the manufacturer is hiring staff for the next-gen Apple phone's production.

A human resources worker from Foxconn's Taiyuan, Shanxi Province plant said the company is hiring 18,000 workers for the fifth-generation iPhone, the World Business Satellite channel on TV Tokyo reports by way of local fansite Macotakara.

iPhone 5 rumours

The recruiter may not have the full gen on iPhone production at the company, but it didn't stop him allegedly revealing Apple's plans for a launch this June.

The news correlates to analysts' iPhone 5 predictions made in February.

Other recent whispers suggest the iPhone 5 will feature a 4.6in display. We'll let you know more on what Cupertino may or may not have up its sleeve as and when. ®
