The iPhone 5S and 5C are officially available for purchase this morning.
How many will Apple sell during the first weekend of sales?
Apple analysts have relatively conservative forecasts, calling for 5 million units at the low end, and 7.75 million units at the high end.
Brian Blair at Wedge Partners summed up analyst sentiment best, writing, “Anything less than 5 million would be a clear negative and anything over 6 could be a significant catalyst for the stock.”
Last year Apple sold 5 million iPhones during the opening weekend, so Apple is expected to beat that.
