KGI's Ming-Chi Kuo - who has a good record as an Apple analyst because of his sources in Apple's supply chain - says quarter-over-quarter shipments of the smartphone will grow 82% in Q4, and predicts the iPhone 6 will head the surge.Apple Insider explains the iPhone 6 will likely make up nearly 60% of all sales over the period, quoting a figure of 41.65M units. The iPhone 6 Plus will not perform quite as well though. Apparently suppliers are having production issues with the larger phones, and Q4 sales are dependent on the supply chain.
Kuo says older models, such as the entry-level iPhone 5C and iPhone 4S, will be discontinued in 2015 in favour of the 5S. Until that happens, promotional pricing on all those lines will reduce the average sales price of iPhones in Apple's lineup. The iPhone 5s could eventually become free on contract, Kuo says.
