Topeka Capital's Brian White commented on Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), saying today's 6.2 million Verizon (NYSE: VZ) iPhone number suggests a total iPhone number for the quarter above 56 million.

White notes, "Approximately 50% of the which equates to the iPhone 5. As such, it appears as if the iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 were particularly strong in the quarter. Over the past six quarters, Verizon has accounted for approximately 11% of Apple's total iPhone shipments. Using this 11% number, we can easily back into a greater than 56 million iPhone shipment number in the quarter. Even with 12% penetration, we can get over 51 million.

If White is accurate, this would be above the consensus of ~50 million.

White maintained a Buy rating and price target of $1,111 on Apple.
