“This is the unit sales number that matters most to Apple — the one for the product that accounted for nearly 53% of the company’s total revenue last quarter,” Philip Elmer-DeWitt reports for Fortune.
“And despite all the talk of a worldwide slowdown in high-end smartphone sales that followed the launch this spring of Samsung’s Galaxy S4, the consensus among the 45 Apple analysts we’ve heard from so far is that iPhone sales continued to grow — albeit in single digits — in the June quarter,” P.E.D. reports. “The average estimate among these 28 Wall Street professionals and 17 amateurs is that Apple will report sales of 27.15 million iPhones for fiscal Q3 2013, up 4.3% from last year’s 26.03 million.”
P.E.D. reports, “It’s not the 113% growth Apple reported two years ago, or even the 28% growth it reported last year. But considering that the three models Apple is selling — the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 — are 9 months, 21 months and 36 months old, respectively, it’s remarkable that sales are growing at all.”
