- 2019 was a record year for Foxconn revenue.
- The company expects things to be even better this year.
- When Apple makes money, so does its partners.
Foxconn is one of the main players in the production of iPhones and DigiTimes reports that 2019 was the company's best yet.
The report notes that an increase of just 0.82% on 2018 was enough to give 2019 the crown as the best year for Foxconn revenue to date.
Things are expected to continue their upward trend in 2020, according to DigiTimes, with iPhone business part of those high expectations.
Some analysts have suggested that 2020 will also be a bumper year for Apple. With Foxconn making iPhones it's likely the trickle-down of cash will fill the coffers of both companies this year.
