Foxconn boss, Terry Gou, has reportedly confirmed that Apple is working on a HD television set, dubbed the iTV.

According to China Daily, Gou has said that Apple manufacturer Foxconn is working with Sharp in Japan to prepare for production of the highly anticipated Apple television set.

"Gou said Foxconn is making preparations for iTV, Apple Inc's rumoured upcoming high-definition television, although development or manufacturing has yet to begin," says the report.

China Daily says that the 'iTV' will feature aluminium construction, the iPhone 4S's Siri, and FaceTime.

Last week, we reported that a prototype of the Apple television set, which resembled a larger Apple monitor, has been spotted. The prototype HDTV has a built-in iSight camera for FaceTime, which has facial recognition, as well as Siri.

Another report suggests that Apple could be making a television set which looks like a transparent screen with a glass bezel that you can fix to the wall in every room of your house.

Apple's HDTV could also come with an Apple branded games console.

The latest predictions suggest that the Apple HDTV will arrive in 2014.
