Apple could end up shifting 10m units of the rumoured iPhone 5 if the device launches at a September 12 Apple event, and then subsequently released nine days later on September 21, as rumoured, an expert has claimed

 

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, said: "We believe that if the 21st is the actual ship date, Apple could sell 6-10 million iPhone 5 handsets in the final week of September barring supply issues."

According to figures, each iteration of the iPhone sells more than the other; the iPhone 4S sold more than 4m units three days after going on sale; its predecessor, the iPhone 4, sold 1.7m, while the iPhone 3GS shifted over 1m.  

Based on these figures, Muster was able to conjure up a rough estimate of how many units of the next-gen iPhone Apple is likely to shift in its first week (10m units) and during the September quarter (a whopping 26-28m units), which punches above the current Wall Street expectation of 23m units during the same period.

If the targets are met, it would make the iPhone 5 Apple’s most successful smartphone ever.

iPhone 5: ‘It’s almost here?’

Apple has sent out invitations to press, inviting them to an event in California on September 12, sparking rumours that it will launch the iPhone 5, along with the rumoured iPad Mini.

Rumours surrounding the iPhone 5’s supposed specifications include a larger 4.3-inch screen, NFC capabilities and a £499-£699 price tag.
