Monday's sales number will likely be more than 6 million
"On a final note, Kuo is projecting 5.2 million iPhone 5S and 8.4 million iPhone 5C sales in the third quarter of this year. As for the Christmas quarter, Apple should ship 28 million iPhone 5S units and 18.7 million iPhone 5C units.“
Ming-Chi Kuo is a financial analyst with very reliable track record of covering Apple. He projects iphone 5s and 5c sales to be 13.6 million combined for the current quarter, which has only 10 days left. The launch weekend has 3 days. If we assume the first 3 days has a higher volume than the 10-day average of 1.36 million per day, I think it's safe to say in the 3 days 2 million units can be sold per day. That's 6 million for the weekend factoring in presales. I don't know how WS will view this number, but I think it's a beat.
Yep, Ming-Chi Kuo predicts initially 5c will outsell 5s because of 5s has fewer shipments, but later on 5s will be the more popular choice. For the remainder of 2013, 5s will ship 28 million units, and 5c will ship 18.7 million units.
