Analyst predicts iPhone 5 September launch to shore up Apple Q4 results

An analyst at Piper Jaffray  stated that the iPhone 5 launched expected on September 12 may add 6 to 10 million units to Apple's Q4 sales.

It is quite likely that Apple might unveil its much-awaited sixth generation smartphone - iPhone 5 at an event organized on 12 September, and start shipping on 21 September. If this scenario comes true the Apple's fourth quarter earnings could increase 12%, DailyFinance predicts.

There is also info spread around that the launch would save Apple from disappointing results in the fourth quarter of 2012 as all iPhone sales made until 29 September would count toward Apple's Q4 revenue.
