Apple should unveil the next generation iPhone next month, with expecations of selling over 10 million units in the first week, according to a new RBC note to investors, reports Business Insider.




RBC analyst Amit Daryanani said: "Most supply chain data is pointing towards Apple gearing up to ramp 70-80 million iPhone 6 units across the two form factors (4.7"/5.5"). This is a notable uptick from last year when the supply chain ramped 50-60 million units". Daryanani also believes that Apple will sell over 10 million iPhone 6 units in the first week of its launch, compared to the 9 million iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C units combined when the company launched them last year.


We should expect to see two iPhone 6 smartphones unveiled, the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch versions. The increased demand will come from Apple finally giving users something they've been asking for: a bigger screen, even though it'll go against previous marketing from the company, where it said that the 4-inch screen on the latest iPhones was perfect for the human hand, as a bigger screen would see users not reach the upper parts of the screen with their thumbs.
