Apple is expected to sell 189 million iPhones next year

Recently it was revealed that Apple had managed to sell a whopping 10 million new iPhone 6 units during its launch weekend alone. It should be noted that the phones sold were also limited to several countries as Apple had not rolled out the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus to the rest of the world yet. That is mighty impressive. Now if and when Apple does roll it out to the rest of the world, how many units could Apple end up selling? Well according to a report by Keith Bachman, an analyst at BMO Capital, he believes that Apple could end up selling as many as 189 million iPhone units in 2015.

Keith Bachman is an analyst who hangs his abacus at BMO Capital. After running through some calculations, he now estimates that Apple will sell 189 million units of the Apple iPhone in fiscal year 2015. Short term predictions are harder to compute at the moment, because of the lack of visibility involved in figuring out when China will allow the Apple iPhone 6and Apple iPhone 6 Plus to go on sale. Right now, the two models have not received all of the approvals they need from regulators in the country. Last year, China (for the first time) was one of the countries included in the initial launch of the iPhone. Bachman’s crystal ball was clear enough for him to forecast 58 million in iPhone holiday sales this year, although the actual figure could be higher if Chinese sales get on track soon. He expects the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 to account for 70% to 75% of all iPhone units sold in fiscal 2015. Bachman believes that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus will be responsible for 25% to 30% of iPhone sales next year.
