Gene Munster predicted 6 - 10 million last year, saying that 8 million is most likely. He got burned when Apple sold 5 million.
This year Gene decided to be more conservative, saying 5 - 6 million... and he got burned again.

I predicted 7-8 MM. This is fantastic. So much for the "5C is too expensive" crowd. Of course they will switch their tunes to the "imagine if the 5C was $50 cheaper..." Crowd.

But imagine if it was.
I am going to do something unusual on the Internet and admit I was wrong. If Apple are selling out of the 5C at this price it didn't need to go lower. However I hope when the upgrade/Christmas/Chinese new year is over prices are subtly reduced.

Coupled with news that they sold about 3.5:1 ratio of 5S:5C, to appease the naysayers that the 5C sales shouldn't count being internally equivalent to a 5, that still amounts to about 7 million 5S units, outpacing 5's 5 million, and up against self-competition from the 5C and stiffer premium-market competition from the Lumia and Moto X that weren't as strong (or weren't around at all) last year.

Well I think he's quoting Bugs Bunny with "maroon."
If the 5s is actually outselling the 5c by 3.7 X as data suggests then I wouldn't say you are too far wrong.
I wonder where TapTapTap is today. He told us he was certain that the 5c was a flop and there was no way that 5 million were sold.
APPLE IS DOOMED!!! DOOOOOOOMED!!!!!!
ONLY 9 million? C'mon!!! whats goin on with Tim Cook?
Apple should be selling 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Iphones!
Apple sucks! Android rulez!
It looks to me like Tim Cook put out the amount that he knew was necessary to blow away last year's amount... knowing he could sell them.
LOL. Yeah I'm sure Tim Cook wants to go to jail for stock manipulation by flat out lying about early sales figures.

9 MILLION!!!! No freaking way. When the new iPhones were announced all the tech pundits said Apple would be lucky to sell just a few million iPhones because they were just last year's models rehashed with minor upgrades. 9 EFFING MILLION!!! WOW! Apple just delayed its doom for another quarter. Maybe... but unfortunately next year Wall Street will want Apple to sell 12 million iPhones over a weekend or else investor fears will return.
That announcement should send up Apple stock about $5 a share.
And to Peter Misek of Jefferies... FU, you manipulating prick.
Good call (pun intended).
