With Apple’s upcoming fiscal Q3 earnings call just around the corner, analysts are predicting the company sold as many as 40 million iPhones during the quarter that ended last month. That’s on the high side of estimates complied by Fortune, however. Estimates from a poll of 26 analysts includes predictions ranging from 31.8 million to almost 40 million units. The average of estimates comes in at 35.88 million.
If Apple does report iPhone sales for the quarter somewhere in the neighbourhood of the 35 million average, that would represent an almost 15% increase from last year. In its Q3 earnings report last year, the company reported growth of 20% year over year for iPhone sales with sales of 31.2 million iPhones during the quarter.
Even with new iPhones expected this fall in what might turn out to be one of the biggest updates yet for the device, it looks like iPhone sales could remain strong going into the new launches. Apple’s earnings call is scheduled for Tuesday, July 22 next week.
