The iPhone 5 Assembly Line : How Much will it sell




               
Gene Munster is raising his September iPhone estimates from 22 million to 27.2 million units given the confirmation of the iPhone 5 launch on September 21. As previously noted, he believes that Apple could sell between 6-10 million iPhone 5s by the end of September. Munster notes the company sold 4 million iPhone 4GS’s in its three day launch weekend last year. 

Historically, first-weekend sales of new iPhones have ramped up significantly with the debut of each successive model. The iPhone 3GS sold more than one million units during its first weekend at market. The iPhone 4 sold more than 1.7 million. And the iPhone 4S sold more than four million.

 Apple is expected  to report sales of between 22 million and 23 million iPhones during the September quarter. But if Apple ships its next-generation iPhone on Sept. 21, as expected, sales could be even higher.
According to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, iPhone sales for the period could range between 26 million and 28 million units, with the bulk of that increase occurring the week of Sept. 21.

Based on numerous news reports pointing to a September launch of the iPhone 5, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster estimates that Apple will sell 26 million to 28 million devices overall. 


iPhone 5 could hit 10M units sold in September, analyst says | Apple - CNET News: "Should Apple launch its fifth version of the iPhone in September, the company is likely to sell 6 million to 10 million of those devices in the last 10 days of the month, according to an analyst.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster estimated that Apple will sell 26 million to 28 million devices overall in its September quarter. That projection is well ahead of current estimates, which account for slowing iPhone sales and roughly 22 million to 23 million units in the quarter."


For Apple, a September launch would allow it to top Wall Street estimates. In recent quarters, Apple fell short of projections even though it still has raked in tons of cash.
In the big picture, the iPhone 5 timing of units isn't that big a deal -- unless you hold Apple shares. Munster noted that he expects the iPhone 5 to be "the largest consumer electronics product upgrade in history."


 Horace Dideu of Asymco recently posted a  chart on  how iPhone generation ranked in terms of  Sales History

The 3G easily outsold the original iPhone. In fact, it sold nearly four times as many.
The 3GS also handily beat the 3G+original total by a factor of 1.6
The 4 also beat the 3GS+3G+original. As the 4 may continue to sell into the future, the beat will only grow larger.
The 4S is only half way through beating  the 4+3GS+3G+original
