Reports that iPhone 6s production may be slower than expected may be plain wrong, if you go by the record earnings one iPhone supplier recorded last month.

Catcher Technologies supplies the metal casings for the iPhone 6s. In November it recorded sales on $254 million — representing an increase of 1.4 percent from the previous month, and a massive 50.3 percent increase from this time last year.

While not all of Catcher’s money comes from Apple, the iPhone orders account for enough that analysts are confident the continued success of Apple’s handsets is responsible for the supplier’s sustained success.

At an investors’ conference last month, Catcher chairman Allen Horng said the company would see “very visible” sales growth in the fourth quarter of this year.

Despite every analyst trying to trip over one another to predict the exact money when the iPhone empire begins to crumble, it seems that Apple naysayers may have to wait at least one more year to start work on their obituary pieces.
