According to a new report by Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, Apple should be expecting to see at least 1 million pre-orders on the first day, which is half as many as the iPhone 5 got late last year. This will put Apple’s pre-order number quite low this year, since Apple isn’t offering pre-orders on the iPhone 5s.
Considering Apple has two phones which they are releasing this year, they could see themselves shipping more phones than usual, but many have been people who have been left disappointed with the iPhone 5s, which could kill sales.
Many were expecting more of a change from Apple, as companies such as Motorola, Samsung and HTC begin to bring out great smartphones which are beginning to eat up Apple’s marketshare. Those who are already on the iPhone 5 won’t really see a reason to upgrade, but those who are on the iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S might enjoy the upgrade as it brings an extra colour option and also a fingerprint scanner.
