Apple is set to see grand sales for its upcoming iPhone 15 Series, as an analyst predicted that over 250 million 4-year-old iPhones are preparing for an upgrade this year.

Most of these pending iPhones run old software, which Apple is ditching gradually in favour of new features. Also, the new hardware Apple is bringing to its next-gen iPhones may further push users to upgrade later this year.

The Next-Gen iPhone 15 Series

Though Apple has tens of offerings in its portfolio, iPhones are the most selling units. To date, there are over 1.3 billion iPhones in the world, with new models coming every year. This time, we’re set to see the next-gen iPhone 15 Series – which could record Apple’s biggest sales ever in history.

This comes from Dan Ives, an analyst from an investment firm Wedbush Securities, who noted that over 250 million iPhones are slated for an upgrade this year. Most of these phones are older at least four years or more, making users upgrade for good.

And this chance could we’ll go for the upcoming iPhone 15 Series, which is slated to launch in September this year. Ives is also bullish on the sales of Apple’s recently launched Vision Pro – set to come later next year. Though the price isn’t something that an average user can afford, experts hope to see record sales of this MR headset due to Apple’s craze.

Reports aside, Apple stuffing new hardware into the upcoming iPhone 15 models could further fuel user sales, with the rumours like the next-gen iPhones sporting Dynamic Island notches, powerful chips and better sensors.

While the standard variant of the iPhone 15 Series is likely to garner more sales, the Pro and Pro Max versions too can get their fair share. These models are reported to have advanced A17 chips, with the Pro Max also stuffing a new periscope telephoto camera. All aside, the new models will have a USB-C charging system, making it easier for all.
