Unless you're Apple CEO Tim Cook, it's difficult to get a tour of one of Foxconn's Chinese production facilities. But ifeng has managed to do just that, with a brief news report in which a reporter ventures into the Zhengzhou facility alongside Foxconn CEO Terry Gou. Like ABC's Nightline broadcast from earlier this year, the four-minute clip isn't particularly revelatory when it comes to the controversial working conditions, but it does provide a rare and interesting look at where iPhones are actually made — and the flyby sequence early on is a good indicator of just how big the Zhengzhou plant actually is. You can see the entire clip below, though unfortunately it's not in English.
