Report: Apple Ordered 15 Million iPhone 5s, Plans To Sell Them All In One Month!

While the number does seem high, there are a few factors that could assist its credibility. When you consider the iPhone’s ever-increasing popularity, the rumors that Apple may expand it to new carriers, and the rumors that it may work on both the GSM and CDMA cell networks, the figure becomes much more believable. It’s also possible that Apple might try to go for a simultaneous international launch with the iPhone 5.

Whatever the case may be, if this rumor is true, that’s a whole lot of iPhone 5s. What are your thoughts? Sound off in the comments!

    Does anybody know if the iPhone is rumored to be coming to Sprint? Even with all the awesomeness of a rooted Android phone, it’s still unbelievably buggy.

    1. Sprint is CDMA right? I guess it would be smart for Apple to now release the phone on all available carriers. Especially ones that the phone is compatible with which I THINK Sprint is CDMA.

        That would be awesome. Screw Android. As Mr. Jobs made famous, the iPhone ‘just works’. =]

    Everytime new iPhones come out availability is a big issue. At least here in Europe (I live in Italy), the first iPhone shippment is always preordered, then nothing for months. Usually, when the iPhone comes out if you want to buy it you have to be in the list… and if let’s say you go to a store like 2-3 days after the iPhone was launched, waiting list is at least 3-4 weeks… so I think this would lead to more iPhone availability from the beginning. If they will sell or not? That depends also on what feature it will have. I see many people still owning an iPhone 3G or 3GS, they are all very likely to upgrade. I just got a white iPhone 4 so I won’t upgrade for now, no matter what features will have the new one. There are many enthusiats out there owning an iPhone 4 that will most likely upgrade to the latest model.

    Action speak louder than words. That’s why Morningstar projects the stock to be at least 50% higher.
