Apple could supply the market with up to 77 million of its iPhone handsets by the year 2013, it was suggested this week.

Generator Research recently compiled a report into the company's future and current developments, claiming Apple has the resources to delve deeper into the mobile phone market.

It also said the iPod manufacturer has the potential to take over from Nokia as the leader in the smartphone sector.

By 2013, Generator Research forecast, Apple may have designed a range of different iPhones and the App Store to cater for third-party developers and different areas of the market

"We think that Apple will use its financial strength and revenue velocity to try to get one or more design cycles ahead of the competition," added head of research Andrew Sheehy.

Users or would-be owners of an iPhone may know that it offers the combined functionality of a widescreen iPod, phone and the ability to access the internet.
