  • iPhone 6 Expected to Dramatically Outsell iPhone 5s


    On Monday, Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty offered up thoughts in response to her recent visits with supply and component manufacturing companies working with Apple on current and future generation products.

    According to Huberty's insights, Apple's iPhone 6 could dramatically outsell the iPhone 5s during its first year of availability. The main reason? China. Apple's iPhone is on a roll across Asia. And emerging market interest may easily lift Apple's iPhone sales to a previously unaccomplished perch.

    At this stage of the game, Apple's Asian suppliers believe the iPhone 6 will enjoy at least 20 percent growth from last year's iPhone 5s launch.

    "The April survey indicated that Apple could gain 11 points of share with a larger-screen iPhone," the analyst writes. "In addition, iPhone’s refresh cycle could shorten and boost shipments in the next product cycle as iPhone buyers plan to buy/upgrade sooner than we previously thought and an increasing portion of postpaid subscribers in the US have already switched to installment plans, or plan to do so."

      A lot of people will pick it up for the screen size alone.

      Don't think I'd give up my 5S jailbroken, unless the 6 has more than just a bigger screen.

      The moment the 6 & iOS 8 get a jailbreak I'll buy it, for how I'm keeping my awesome jailbreak on my 5S. Nothing can top having a jailbroken iOS device, NOTHING.

      Exactly! Apple has been dragging their feet in getting a larger screen on the market BUT those that switched and existing users will want the bigger screen w/ the user-friendly OS. They're gonna make a killing w/ these!

      I'm sure the S5 will outsell the S4 as well.

      I'm also on a Jailbroken 5S, but I'll be upgrading as soon as the 6 comes out. The combination of a larger screen and iOS 8 will be enough to keep me happy until a jailbreak for iOS 8 is out. I love my jailbreak but playing around with a new OS is always fun. Plus I'm getting a little tired of all the crashes from 7.0.x. + jailbreak tweaks.

      I doubt iOS 8 will be much different from iOS 7. A redesigned UI and a few tweaks stolen from Cydia, again. Other then that I don't see what would be worth giving up a jailbroken 5S for. Real widgets or anything like that will never happen. I use bridge, movie/music box, pandora downloader, Flex 2, the list goes on and on. There are so many benefits with being jailbroken it'll take a whole lot to get me to upgrade. I'm pretty sure the iPhone 6 will record 4K@60fps and have some higher end features as far as hardware. It'll be a power house, but until it's jailbroken (if it ever is) I don't see myself upgrading to it just because Cydia offers what Apple can't

      How is he ignorant? Itīs true. Apple has become ****** since Jobs died. I switched to an HTC One M8 because my iPhone kept screwing up on iOS every few months.

      This is the 3rd time I've seen a leaked dummy of an IPhone and I'm really really not sure if I like the gold ring around the home / touch button. The power button on the side I get, and I'm loving the form factor and the potential size increase, but that home button ......

      That guy that he was quoting is an idiot...jamming his sim tray so he could warranty his phone bc he was an idiot and updated his firmware. You switched bc you thought you could find something better. I've never seen a non-jailbroken ianything have any real problems that weren't caused by the user. Nothing I've ever used has had any problems with iOS...it's been whatever tweak I installed that caused the problem.
