Apple could see a significant jump in iPhone sales in its soon-to-conclude fourth quarter. Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty now believes that iPhone sales through the end September will rise 28 percent year over year, according to Fortune. According to the analyst, Apple is likely to sell around 34.5 million iPhone units between July and September. This is a projection that is 11 percent higher than the general consensus of 31 million units. Cupertino officially releases the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c this Friday, Sept. 20. As a result, only the first nine days of sales are to be included in the quarterly results. Apple's biggest iPhone sales quarter of the year begins in October. In Q1 2013, Apple reported record iPhone sales of 47.8 million units.
