If the record opening-weekend iPhone 5 sales are a harbinger of the future, then Apple (AAPL) is going to make a lot of money over the next year. Per AppleInsider, Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty says that Apple is currently on pace to sell 200 million iPhones in 2013 while receiving a major boost from Chinese telecom giants China Unicom and  China Telecom, which Huberty projects will start selling the iPhone 5 in late 2012 or early 2013. The analyst also sees Apple selling 25 million iPhones by the end of September and 50 million more iPhones in the fourth quarter of 2012.
