Analysts make a study of iPhone 5S sales ahead iPhone 6 launch

A study from Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster shows that the number of people looking to buy an iPhone in the coming months will continue to decline.

Out of 1,016 consumers 34 % plan to buy an iPhone, lower than 39 % in February, 44 % last December, and 50 % after the iPhone 5S was released last fall.

54% of the respondents indicated that they want to buy an Android smartphone over the same period.

The decline is due to the fact that customers are less interested in buying the current iPhone ahead of the launch of the next generation smartphone, in this case the iPhone 6.

The 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is rumored to be launched in the fall, while the 5.5-inch version could arrive several months later.

Morgan Stanley analysts expect the iPhone 6 to bring NFC equipment.
