Sales are still expected to reach up to 2.6 million units by year's end, says KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
The rumor of a smaller iPhone has been floating around for a while, but this one comes from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, whose crystal ball has proven accurate in the past.
Supply of the latest big-screened iPhone may be limited at launch date. But the problem might be due more to technical issues than heavy demand, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Apple's iPhone 6S may not offer the necessary features to draw in enough buyers to boost fourth-quarter sales, according to the crystal ball of KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
The next iPhone will pack in new features such as Force Touch, but also beef up the memory, processor and camera, says KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Apple CEO Tim Cook also says Watch sales were at their highest rate during the June part of the quarter, dismissing the notion that interest has tailed off.
The tech giant continued to benefit from booming iPhone sales during the June period, but it didn't sell as many as analysts had expected.
The entry-level Sport version and the Apple Watch are readily available. Only the pricey Apple Watch Edition is still backlogged.
Outfitted with tech that senses the pressure of your touch, the next model could be dubbed the iPhone 7 instead of the iPhone 6S, claims analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Shame about the supply pinch, though. Without that, sales might actually soar as high as 50 million, says a Morgan Stanley analyst.
