Here's a chart showing past iPhone sales and analyst estimates for the June quarter.

Fortune notes that the average estimate among 28 professionals and 17 amatuers is 27.15 million iPhones sold in fiscal Q3, 2013. That's up only 4.3% from last year's 26.03 million.

It's not the 113% growth Apple reported two years ago, or even the 28% growth it reported last year. But considering that the three models Apple is selling -- the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 -- are 9 months, 21 months and 36 months old, respectively, it's remarkable that sales are growing at all.

As usual the pros were more conservative predicting 26.7 million in sales compared to the amateur analysts who predict 27.9 million. The highest estimate was 32 million from Matt Lew, an independent with the Braeburn Group. The lowest was 23 million from Lazard's Edward Parker.

Apple will announce its earnings on July 23rd.

Apple devices are great but they are so expensive and the competition is getting tougher with the Samsung, Htc, etc.. Coming out with hardware better than current apple devices
