The new iPhones are very close, in fact, if everything goes as indicated by most media, on the same day September 20th the first countries could start to enjoy the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Disadvantages of the release of the iPhone on this date?
The only problem Apple could have would be for its shareholders with its fiscal quarter results. Normally, most users who intend to buy an iPhone are waiting for Apple’s news to be released next Tuesday, so sales of the apple terminal will have been modest during these months.
Apple would seek to sell a record number of new iPhones in order to improve figures in the fiscal quarter
As indicated by the media, the fiscal quarter ends on September 30th , so if we take into account that Apple could release the new iPhones on the 20th of the same month, they would have 10 days to register the highest number of sales and thus significantly increase the number of terminals sold during this quarter.
So, how many iPhones could Apple sell in just ten days? According to Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves, the company could achieve the incredible figure of 13 million iPhones sold in just 10 days , adding, of course, the sales of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.
In fact, if the Chinese market welcomes Apple’s new, more affordable terminal, sales figures could soar like never before. We will also have to take into account the number of countries in which the iPhone is being launched simultaneously. Will Spain be among them?
Apple could sell 31 million iPhones this quarter, 13 of which would be from last 10 days’ sales
Hargreaves continues with its estimates and states that Cupertino could obtain figures this quarter of 31 million iPhones sold , a feat considering that 13 of those 31 million would be sold in the 10 days prior to the end of the fiscal quarter.
As indicated in Cult of Mac, for Apple to achieve these figures, they would have to sell 1 million iPhones a day since its launch on September 20th. By the analyst’s own admission, this may be possible if the supply chain for such iPhones responds efficiently to the anticipated high demand.
How many iPhones do you think Apple will sell before the end of its fiscal quarter?
