Analyst Calls for Two New iPhones AnnuallyAre two iPhone refreshes a year the new norm for Apple?

Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty thinks so. And on Wednesday, that’s the prediction she made.

Similar to Apple’s October launch of its new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, Apple will likely introduce at least two new iPhones each year from now on, Huberty tells investors.

Following a recent meeting with Apple CEO Tim Cook, Huberty says Apple seems positioned to embrace a greater frequency for product refreshes when it comes to their iPhone line.

Since late last year, Apple has been pelted with criticisms from tech watchers and even its own board members, all of whom insist that Apple needs to innovate more vigorously and release new products more frequently.

Although it isn’t clear if the iPad and iPad mini will also see multiple refreshes annually, the iPhone line-up almost certainly will.
