We all know just how popular the iPhone 5 is going to be, even if some people can't tell the difference between an iPhone 4S and the new, longer, iPhone 5, but this won't stop it shipping in insane numbers.

Research firm, IHS iSuppli have put out some predictions on the iPhone 5 shipment numbers, where they expect the sixth-generation iPhone to help Apple push smartphone shipments this year up to 149 million units. IHS iSuppli also note that more users would be influenced to upgrade because of the larger display and 4G LTE connectivity.

 

Daniel Gleeson, a mobile analyst for IHS iSuppli says:

 

Unlike last year's release of the iPhone 4S, this year's iPhone 5 announcement comes as a significant departure from previous models. The addition of a new, larger screen is a fundamental change in product design. Furthermore, the iPhone 5 is the first member of Apple's smartphone line to feature 4G long-term evolution (LTE) connectivity, accelerating data speeds dramatically compared to previous models. These major improvements will drive strong sales for the iPhone 5.
