Kuo's estimates

Apple reports earnings next Tuesday, January 27.

According to Ming Chi Kuo, analyst at KGI Securities, Apple will report mind-melting iPhone sales.

In a new report picked up at Apple Insider, Kuo forecasts Apple sold 73 million iPhones. Of that, 42 million were iPhone 6s, 16 million were iPhone 6 Pluses, and the rest is a mix of other iPhone models.


The consensus amongst analysts is that Apple sold 66 million iPhones last quarter. If Kuo is right, and he is one of the most accurate Apple analysts out there, then Apple will smash expectations.

If Kuo is right, iPhone sales will be up a whopping 43% on a year-over-year basis. And, if Kuo is right, Apple will have sold ~$44 billion worth of iPhones. For some context, Google is expected to do $15 billion in revenue for the same period.
