Piper Jaffray expects Apple sold 33 million iPhones, 12 million iPads, 4.3 million Macs in Q212

“With Apple to report its earnings in just a week and a half, the company is projected to reveal sales of 33 million iPhones and 12 million iPads to kick off calendar 2012,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.

“Those are the the latest projections from Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, whose numbers differ from the average expectations on Wall Street,” Hughes reports. “Munster’s 33 million iPhone projection is a bit higher than the Street’s forecast of 30.5 million handsets, while his forecast of 12 million iPads is slightly below the Street’s 13 million.”

Hughes reports, “Munster also sees Apple reporting sales of 4.3 million Macs in the three-month span from January to March, slightly below Wall Street’s expected 4.4 million.”
