Did Apple sell over 50 million Apple iPhones during the last quarter?

Did Apple sell over 50 million Apple iPhones during the last quarter?
A week from today, Apple will release its fiscal first quarter earnings. Wall Street analysts have used calculators, abacuses, fingers and toes trying to compute how many iPhones the Cupertino based tech titan sold over the three month period. After all, that is the $64 million billion dollar question. Figure out how many units of its iconic smartphone Apple sold in the quarter, and the world is your oyster.

So just how many iPhones did Apple sell in its first fiscal quarter? Keep in mind that this is the last three month period that will not include sales from China Mobile. The world's largest carrier, with 763 million subscribers, launched the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c on Friday.

44 analysts, 27 of them professionals who ply their trade on the Street, have a consensus estimate of 55.3 million iPhones sold in the period. That would be a 16% gain over the same period last year. And this year, both the pros and the amateurs are not that far apart with their estimates. The average guess from amateurs is that Apple sold 57.1 million units of the iPhone last quarter. That is just 3 million more than the estimates from the professionals.

The most bullish guess comes from non-pro Faizal Kara from the Braeburn Group, who expects Apple to report 59.73 million iPhone sales for the quarter. The same Group is responsible for the lowest estimate, 50 million units sold, which comes from Ilari Scheinin. Last year, Apple reported sales of 47.79 million iPhones for the first quarter.  In case you're wondering, Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster is looking for Apple to report 55.5 million iPhones sold in the quarter while Peter Misek of Jefferies is looking for Apple to report sales of 55 million units for the period.

Apple devices are good in terms of smoothness and performance buy 4"inch screen and unable to select default browsers and all have always stopped me from using iPhones from more than 2 days

Samsung user should also be happy that Apple is doing well. Keep Samsung on their toes and continue to bring worthwhile product at a reasonable price.

But he said default browser. If you click a web link in an email, what browser does it open in?

There is a difference between installing third party browsers and making them default. So you say when opening a link in for example an email, it opens with the browser you want?

Is your iPhone jailbroken?

Safari is the best browser I've used. The cut copy paste, text to speech, reader feature that actually works, built in dictionary are some of its stand out features.

Only if you copy and paste the URL or if your jailbroken. Clicking the link will open in Safari.

Clicking a link will open it in Dolphin for me. Why are you still trying to prove me wrong lmao. Go get educated sir.

Yes. When I click on a link, it will open in Dolphin browser, or any browser I set as my default in settings. My next sentence isnt directed at you, but at the general public on this website. So many people on here trash talk iPhone on it's lacking features, when in reality, it can do anything an Android can do, and has been doing it way before Android, including Air Gestures, default browsers, pattern unlocks, detach video panes and multitask, multitasking, that keyboard swipe bullsh*t, Widgets, root access and file management, torrenting through the phone, torrent desktop remotes and managers, free tethering tools, and not to mention, COMPLETE CUSTOMIZATION of anything you wish that is on your phone, etc etc etc. The list can go on forever. So many people against Apple lack knowledge on this, and it is funny haha. A quick jailbreak (takes 3 minutes tops) and you're good to go. Not to mention the community behind it.

So yes, I can, and many many others can, set a default browser that will open when a link is clicked, something I've been doing since my iPhone "2".

Cheers :)

These fandroids only see in Black and White, and have not been exposed to the full potential of an iPhone, especially the 5s. I love my Note 2 and all, and can't go wrong, but I'm always sticking with my quality Apple product. Check out my huge paragraph reply to some guy above. Cheers mate!

Here you go. Btw, no other browser is listed in the internal settings of BrowserChooser because I enjoy using Safari and enjoy using its superior speeds. But just to educate you and everyone else in this thread, I made it easy: look at the screenshots for yourself.

P.s. Random home screen image because I love my home screen on my iPhone 5s.

Don't judge all fandroids all at once. And I think you are refering to me as the some guy ;)
I know jailbroken iPhones can do a lot more than most people know. But normally when talking about options and possibilties of a phone, I don't take in consideration rooting and jailbreaking, since avarage Joe doesn't know how to or even knows about this option.

Ps nice homescreen ;)
PPS I own an iPhone as wel (4S), what jailbreak do you use?
