Three separate readers reported their iPhone 5s have shipped from the Zhengzhou region of inland China via UPS—likely from the nearby Taiyuan Foxconn factory (pictured above) in Shanxi Province . The factory was rumored to have some labor turmoil earlier this year, but it appears it has cranked out the earliest batches of iPhone 5s.

In March, Foxconn had as many as 20,000 openings for workers at the factory to ramp up for launch.
