The devices, which officially launch on Friday, after a week of pre-orders, has been sold out from most carriers and retailers. There have also been reports that the iPhone 5S has seen supply constraints overseas.
Kuo expects the company to sell between 6 and 8 million combined handsets by the end of the weekend. Even if the low-end of that projection is hit, it would be significantly higher than last year's record-breaking iPhone 5 launch.
The analyst also expects that the iPhone 5s will account for between 35% and 45% of total opening-weekend sales.
