An investment firm, Piper Jaffray, released their estimates for Apple and forecasted the Cupertino-based company will sell over 200 million iOS devices, either iPhones or iPads in 2013. They found that the company will earn $164 billion in revenue that same year.
Jaffray analyst Gene Munster found that the iPhone will be a large portion of Apple’s growth and will be 49% of their revenue in 2013. He wrote, “One key topic on which we are different than consensus thinking is our belief that the iPhone unit growth can continue in the 30% range while ASP’s will be more than double the smartphone industry average.” He went on to say, “In other words, we do not believe Apple needs an ultra low end offering to grow iPhone units at 30%. If Apple was to announce an unsubsidized, sub-$200 iPhone, our unit estimates would be too low and ASPs would be too hight.”
Münster also found that the iPad will contribute 21% of Apple’s revenue in 2013.
