Apple Is expected to sell 71M iPhones during the holiday quarter

KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo issued a new report to investors today with some adjusted predictions for iPhone sales during the all-important holiday quarter. Buoyed by the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the prominent Apple analyst sees the company selling 71.5 million during the 3-month period.

For some context, Apple sold 51 million iPhones during the year-ago holiday quarter. Kuo believes the iPhone 6 will be the leading cause for the dramatic jump, accounting for 41.6 million iPhone sales—nearly 60%. The 6 Plus, he says, is in a distant second due in large part to supply shortages.

Following the blowout holiday quarter, however, Kuo sees iPhone sales dropping down below 50 million units, due mostly to poor off-season demand. He also believes Apple will discontinue both iPhone 5c and 4s models, despite their success in emerging markets, to streamline its handset offerings.
