  • Apple's 6th Generation iPhone Projected to Sell 250 Million Units


    Sales expectations for Apple's 6th generation iPhone - tentatively dubbed the iPhone 5 across the blogosphere - are reaching astronomical proportions.

    Craig Berger of FBR Capital Markets is the latest market analyst and Apple watcher to step up with a bold projection of where iPhone sales could end up over the course of the device's market life.

    In response to the latest lofty estimates, John Paczkowski of All Things D observed that "iPhone 5 projections threaten analysts’ supplies of superlatives." What Paczkowski was reacting to is Berger's assertion that Apple will sell 250 million units of the 6th generation iPhone.

    “We expect the iPhone 5 … has the potential to generate the most promising device upgrade cycle in Apple’s history,” Berger said. “We calculate that the device represents an opportunity to generate earnings of $50 per share throughout its life cycle. We estimate that Apple should sell 250 million iPhone 5 units at an average ASP of $575, generating nearly $144 billion in revenue, $77 billion in gross profit, and $47 billion in net income.”

    During the last two weeks, little has changed inside the Apple supply chain, the scuttlebutt from which remains that the new iPhone will be unveiled on or around September 12th.

      I, too, can't stand that make assumptions. I also can't stand when people ignorantly guarantee things that most of us know will not come true. It would come as no surprise to anybody, at least anybody that pays attention, if it didn't have LTE and didn't have a better processor. While I would certainly hope Apple would include those, nobody can guarantee that it has. You would have a better chance of being right if you guaranteed that it hasn't. The only guarantee anybody can legitimately make is that the next iPhone will only be slightly better than the current model. If you doubt this, well, all I can do is point you to its 5 predecessors as examples.

      My 3GS is getting so sluggish. Hope the next iPhone is worth not switching to Samsung Galaxy S3

      I get what you're saying. I'm just seeing all over the place hateful comments all because the phone is a little taller, lol. I myself isn't the biggest of fans of this new taller screen, IMO it's a real pointless screen upgrade without making it any wider - like literally, a taller screen serves zero purpose without it being wider. You won't be able to read text any better, websites, etc etc - all that is done as easy as a scroll down of the thumb in the current state of size. But I don't have any negative spewed comments about it and certainly it isn't going to steer me away from buying it. I look at is as a benefit for cooler springboard widgets I guess if anything. It's really not THAT much bigger anyways, so I don't think it will be too hard or annoying to get used to, it'll be fine. I will say that the 3.5" size fits between my pinky finger and poiter finger perfectly, taller might not fit quite as perfect but oh well lol. I can't wait for an LTE device that's for sure, I'm in SoCal, so coverage is pretty decent right now.

      Not if they run out of stock before the phone even releases like with the iphone 4

      I am just like a lot of people on here that currently use the iPhone but have became let down by the last couple phones. Unlike in the past when I got my first iPhone they now have competition that is catching up. I don't bash apple nor do I put my iPhone up on a pedestal. I just want the best product and I don't have a apple tattoo that I am loyal too

      I remember the days when I used to get a new phone and was excited for its looks and features. So I hope it will look very different. IMO I am a little bored of looking at the same phone for 3 years. Don't get me wrong I love my iPhone and all of the features. I just think I'm ready for a bit of a change

      Not a Samsung user yet. I hope to never switch but if and when I do I hope that apple steps up their game enough to win me back.

      People just want something new & refreshing, unlike the 4S. The S3 is one of the hottest phones out now, duh.

      ... yes because the iphone 3gs to 4 is a very small update. only a front facing camera, a new camera higher megapixel and higher zoom, a better screen resolution, a faster processor, thinner phone, faster 3g speeds, completely new design, cdma support, a gyroscope, led flash, two microphones, more ram, better battery life, micro sim support and more.

      btw I can guarantee it will have lte support at least in the US because apple is a big competitor for a reason. I don't like how you guys hate on apple and think people buy there products becuase they are mindless idiots. Apple does better because they make high quality products and don't just spam the market with phones.

      also it always has a new better processor they would be dumb not to include a quad core processor they already designed the a5x or even a new a6 processor..

      I'm not sure if you know what a diagonal actually is :/ If you increase the length or width of a rectangle the diagonal WILL increase. This isn't up for debate or subject to opinion but is fact. If the rumours are to be believed then then the new iPhone's screen will be the same pixel and physical width as the iPhone 4S', but is 176 pixels taller increasing the diagonal size from 3.5 inches to 3.99 inches.

      I think pretty much all a taller screen would do is give u another row of icons...I believe a widescreen movie playing on the phone would remain the same size as it is now so u would have black space on either side as well as the top... Personally, I kinda hope if they do make the screen taller, they would keep the aspect ratio..and increase width also..I just hope not too much bigger...I can hold n type my 3GS in my right hand no problem...much bigger n I don't think I could...I want a phone not a tablet...if it gets too big I'll get a 4s and be done with it...3GS works well so far since 4.2.1...5.x is taxing it a but I would like a little more speed n screen etc..
