Apple Hopes to Sell 190 Million iPhones and 81 Million iPads Next Year

Compared to the recent targets of 30 million, 190 million seems a massive figure. Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty has anticipated that Apple would possibly break its previous sales records next year, with around 200 million iPhones expected to be sold.

Noticeably, more and more consumers are hoped to purchase iPhone in the next quarter compared to consumers’ inclination towards iPhone this holiday season. Similarly, the demand for Apple’s iPads also seems to increase in the coming days.

For the final quarter in 2011, Apple is hoping to sell somewhere around 31 to 36 million iPhones, which is a significant 30% more than what estimated by Wall Street. According to Huberty, in the next year, “US consumers expect to buy more iPhones in C1Q12 than C4Q11.” In the first quarter of 2012, Apple is expected to sell more than 41 million iPhones handsets.

Morgan Stanley also conducted the AlphaWise survey that also reveals some interesting facts about iPad. It is assumed that the Apple’s most popular tablet will make a huge business with 81 million devices next year. Huberty says that the Cupertino Company can manage to sell more units (up to 15 million more), if it reduced the price of iPad to $399 for entry-level model. There are rumors circulating about the Apple’s new 8-inch iPad. We can expect a drop in the price for the iPad next year, if an 8-inch iPad becomes a reality.
