Apple continues to make huge strides when it comes to iPhone sales, according to new statistics from data compiled by Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty.

Her “AlphaWise” smartphone tracker report indicates that the company is on its way to shipping 42 million iPhones during the first quarter of 2014, trumping a previous record of 37.4 million iPhones, which was set last year.

The demand for iPhones continues to be quite strong in nearly all geographical regions, with main interest stemming from special promotions held through certain carriers.

The only country that seems to be in the negative is China. Although exact numbers weren’t reported, Apple has seen its fair share of struggles in that country, even with launching the new iPhone 5s/5c devices last year. A partnership with China Mobile as a partner is offsetting the loss a little bit, but not enough to turn the results positive just yet.
