Apple cuts iPhone 5C orders

Posted by: Jennifer Cefai (3 years ago)

Apple is reducing orders for the iPhone 5C from its Taiwanese assembler due to what seems to be lower-than-expected demand, according to The Wall Street Journal. Whilst Apple has claimed that it sold 9 million iPhones 5S and 5C during their first weekend of sales – a company record – they didn’t specify how many of those were 5Cs. According to WSJ’s sources, Apple told Pegatron Corp. it would cut orders by less than 20%. On the other hand Hon Hai Precision Industry, which also assembles iPhones, was told the orders would be cut by one third. Given that the iPhone 5S is selling very well in comparison, Apple aren’t too concerned about lagging sales where the iPhone 5C is concerned – in fact, orders have been raised for the former.
