In an effort to be more transparent, Apple has released for the first time specific information about its final assembly facilities.
While Apple published a list of its supply makers last year, the new information gives more details about where each Apple product is made.
The tech giant named the 17 factories where its products are assembled and packaged and also named which product is assembled at each facility and where that facility is located. All but one of the suppliers is owned by a Taiwanese company, and 14 of the 17 factories are located in China.

me used samsung's diffrent type of smart phones&sony,htc
but iphone is awesome its give me good responds i like ios 6
It was a blow to realize that the iPhone 5 I bought last week did not have 16x9 aspect ratio for photos to go with the wide screen on the phone. Virtually everything today is going wide screen, even the video camera in the iPhone. Right now I'd like to go back to my iPhone 4 and carry my Canon, but that phone is gone and I'm stuck with a phone with photos sized for old monitors and CRT TVs. I'm not happy with Apple's lagging on this.
Iphone camera processor is more powerful than any android phone available in market..Megapixel count is merely a myth.A low MP camera with powerful processor will always provide excellent pictures as compared to higher MP
BASED ON MY EXPERIENCE...iphone is the best for me! have switched to S3 from Ip4s and then to IP5...then just recently to S4 I9505 LTE, barely 2 weeks and i am back to IP5...the feel,the touch, the look, the DURABILITY and most importantly the USE...it is DEFINITELY IP5...no question
to some it may be otherwise, but speaking for myself...IT IS THE BEST in the market, TRULY a CLASS above the rest
IP5 is a phone and the extras it carries with it are just bonuses....if you need a high megapixel camera GO BUY A CAMERA, a gaming station get one and not a phone....high speed internet get a laptop...and so forth and so on
IF YOU ARE AN ANDROID FAN...then you are not supposed to be here...
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2013Camera is not good want higher megapixel like 12 mpThere is lot of things iphone needs but apple only do what they want to do.
I am waiting for new smartphones like Firefox and Sailfish and Tizen,,,getting bored with smartphones after being obsessed with them since Nokia 3650,,THERE IS NO DESIGN ANYMORE JUST BORING SLABS.
