RBC: Apple will sell more than 10 million units of the Apple iPhone 6 in the first week after release
According to RBC analyst Amit Daryanani, Apple will sell more than 10 million units of the Apple iPhone 6, in the week following its launch. That is up from the 9 million units of the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c sold in the first week by Apple, when those two handsets launched last year. Many analysts expect Apple to benefit from the demand for two different sized screens. Apple will supposedly release both a 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6, and a 5.5 inch phablet version of the phone.

Apple is expected to introduce the 4.7 inch Apple iPhone 6 at an event being held on September 9th. At this point, it is far from clear when the larger screened model might see the light of day. At various times of the year, we have passed along talk about delays in obtaining parts for the phablet, which has apparently led Apple to consider releasing both models at different times. Apple also could decide to release both models at different times so that the larger version of the phone won't affect the demand for the 4.7 inch model.

Apple has reportedly ordered its manufacturing partners to produce a combined 80 million units of the iPhone by the end of the year. Not only is this a record for an initial run of the device, which would indicate that Apple expects record demand for the iPhone, it also reveals that Apple expects both variants to be on the market before the ball drops in Times Square on December 31st.
