Analysts Estimate iPad Sales For Q3 2013 high estimate of 22 million iPads 32 Million IPhones
I know these are high estimates but lets hope that the downward revision of Q3 earnings will be easy to beat.
The high estimate of 22 million iPads, submitted by independent Paul Reina of the Braeburn Group, would represent a yearly growth rate of nearly 30%.
Fortune notes that the average estimate among 28 professionals and 17 amateurs is 27.15 million iPhones sold in fiscal Q3, 2013. That's up only 4.3% from last year's 26.03 million.
It's not the 113% growth Apple reported two years ago, or even the 28% growth it reported last year. But considering that the three models Apple is selling -- the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 -- are 9 months, 21 months and 36 months old, respectively, it's remarkable that sales are growing at all.
As usual the pros were more conservative predicting 26.7 million in sales compared to the amateur analysts who predict 27.9 million. The highest estimate was 32 million from Matt Lew, an independent with the Braeburn Group. The lowest was 23 million from Lazard's Edward Parker.
