Apparently, it's no secret to anyone what the iPhone 5 will look like. Judging by numerous rumors, the device will receive a 4-inch display, a new dock connector, LTE support, and much more. This will likely be the most significant iPhone update since 2007. One reputable analyst believes that Apple will be able to sell an unimaginable amount - 10 million new devices
during the first week of sales.
This assumption was voiced by analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray. He reported:
It's incredible. Sell that many smartphones in just one week. By comparison, the iPhone 4 sold 1.4 million units in its first 3 days of launch. IPhone 4S sold 4 million units in the first weekend after its release a year later. However, 10 million in just 7 days … it's incredible.
The forecast may not come true. Apple may have 10 million iPhone 5 buyers in its first week, but will it be able to produce the required number of products in such a short time frame?
