Foxconn, the Chinese manufacturer of all our favourite western technological follies, is said to be gearing up to produce a form of sapphire glass -- the tough screen covering many were expecting to see in the iPhone 6.

According to Focus Taiwan, the China Economic Weekly reports that Foxconn has signed an agreement to begin building a "display factory" on a site right next to its iPhone assembly lines, with the main point being to fabricate the sapphire glass that could toughen the next generation of iPhone screens.

Which should mean we're about to enjoy a solid 10 months of relentless iPhone 7/Sapphire display rumours. Can't wait. [Focus Taiwan via MacRumors]
