Thanks for letting us know.

It gives us an idea of when iOS 12 hit GM and when Foxconn started ramping production.

Why do we all need to care when it is manufactured? As long as it works well, who needs this question.

I think you might be missing the point. Point is, sometimes if there is more _Known_issues with an iPhone, others want to know which manufacturing week it might be experiencing the Hardware problem.

For example: If a certain batch of iPhones are experiencing ‘Yellow displays’ and it was on week 35, others want to know specifically when their phone was manufactured if their phone might be a factor not during that week number.
