In the middle of this month, a vehicle said that, at a press conference, Foxconn’s president (Terry Gou) reportedly said his company was preparing to start production on Apple’s television. A few days later the information was denied, with the company saying it is not allowed to comment on plans / products from its partners.

The truth is that it is unusual to see news from iProducts leaking from Foxconn. Precisely for this reason, rumors like this should be treated with great caution.
