Apple’s main manufacturing partner Foxconn benefited from record sales of the iPhone, achieving 56% growth in their year-over-year earnings. The WSJ reports Foxconn’s first quarter profit growth was its largest in a decade.
The company more than doubled its 2014 dividend from NT$1.80 per share to NT$3.80 (US$0.06 to 0.12). Apple represented almost half of the company’s turnover.
Apple announced in April that it sold 61.1 million iPhones in its fiscal Q2 of 2015. (1st quarter calendar year.)
