Expects to sell 200 phones a minute
To the surprise of the suppliers Apple aims to sell at least 25 million iPhone 5 with in the year 2011.
The new version of Apple’s smartphone iPhone 5 is expected to get released on September. Previously it was said that Apple has been aiming to sell 15 million units by the end of the year 2011. But, Wall Street Journal claims that Apple instructed its supplier to get ready to sell at least 25 million units in 2011.
If Apple launches iPhone 5 during September as we expect, then it would leave the suppliers to manufacture at least 3,00,000 units per day or around 200 smartphones per minute. The App Store is already a busy place with more than 4,25,000 apps and has generated more than 15 million downloads. One can expect this number to go up with the launch of iPhone 5.
The previous version of this popular smartphone, iPhone 4 was launched on June 2010 and sold more than three million units during the first 21 days of release. The last quarter has seen Apple selling more than 19 million units. Apple expects a same reception for iPhone 5.
