Apple manufacturing partners Ji-Haw and Foxlink seem set to break sales records this month.

The two firms make official iPod connectors for Apple and third party companies who create add-on products for the market-leading device.

Reporting from the Economic Daily News, DigiTimes claims both firms have begun shipping new connectors, and both seem set to exceed sales records as a result.

The report also speculates on how well Apple will do in terms of sales for its new players, with iPod shuffle sales predicted to meet six million units in Q4, iPod nanos set for four million sales, and 1.5 million iPod with video units expected to ship by the end of the year.

Foxconn, Inventec, Quanta and Asustek manufacture the players, while Ji-Haw and Foxlink make connectors and related components, according to the report.
