Analyst: Apple sold nearly 20 million iPhones in record June quarter

“Next week Apple could post its strongest quarter yet for iPhone sales, as Wall Street firm J.P. Morgan predicted on Thursday sales of 19.6 million iPhones in the June frame,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider

“Analyst Mark Moskowitz made the increase to nearly 20 million from his previous prediction of 17.6 million units,” Hughes reports. “He said that his firm’s research has shown there are no signs of a slowdown in iPhone shipments from Apple.”

  1. If that’s true, it would indicate that most consumers don’t really care (or even know) about rumors of “iPhone 5.” The current design (including current Retina Display) is great, and it will be even better with an A5.

    Some of the surge probably comes from iPhone 3gs two-year contracts that just started to expire in June. Those owners are not waiting for the next iPhone to appear, because even iPhone 4 is a big leap beyond iPhone 3gs.

    1. That’s just the ‘buy on the rumor, sell on the news” trade. The pros buy ahead of time and sell to the crowd as they get excited with the news.

      Standard setup. Meat-n-potatos trade for some.

  2. I upgraded from a 3GS to an unlocked 4 last month @ Saddle Creek. As usual, the store was swarmed with people.
    It’s been years since I have seen it any other way regardless of date/time.
