In a note to investors — as reported by “AppleInsider” (http://www.appleinsider.com) Needham Research analyst Charlie Wolf predicts that Apple will report sales of 4.63 million Macs and 12 million iPads in its September quarter.
Both of those would be records for the company. Last Christmas the company sold 4.1 million Macs and 9.25 million iPads. Wolf’s Mac projections are up from his previous forecast of 4.4 million.
As for iPhone sales, the analyst thinks that Apple will report sales of about 17 million units. That would be a sequential decline from last quarter’s record 20.34 million iPhones sold, as the analyst anticipates that subscribers will postpone purchases ahead of the anticipated iPhone 5 launch.
