Here's When We'll Get the Skinny on iPhone 5 Sales

Stocks in this article: AAPLGOOGNOK

A previous version of this story published at 2:22 p.m. ET incorrectly referred to Waze as Wave.

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- If you really want to know how many iPhone 5s Apple (AAPL) sold, you only have to wait a few more weeks.

Apple announced Tuesday it plans to release its fiscal fourth-quarter results after the closing bell on Oct. 25. A conference call is slated to follow at 5 p.m. EST the same day.

Late in September, Apple said it sold 5 million iPhone 5s in the product's first weekend of availability, breaking the record set by the iPhone 4S.

Some Apple watchers were disappointed by that initial tally, but it is unclear if the 5 million number includes the 2 million iPhone 5s that were pre-ordered on the first day it was available, which was also a record.

Apple has come under scrutiny lately, as its Apple Maps program has been deemed an inferior product to the one it replaced, Google (GOOG) Maps.

CEO Tim Cook eventually apologized to customers, saying, "We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better." Cook went so far as to recommend competing applications, including Google's, Nokia's (NOK), Waze and others.

Apple Maps Apology: Tim Cook's Grand Slam

Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters currently expect the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant to earn $8.89 per share on $36.3 billion in revenue in the September-ended period. That view is up from last year when the company generated a profit of $7.05 per share on sales of $28.27 billion.

After sinking as low as $650.65 earlier in the day, shares of Apple were adding 0.29% to $661.31 in late trades on volume of more than 22 million.
