Apple iPhone 5C orders cut down? Yes, according to report

Apple’s iPhone 5C is basically last year’s iPhone 5, in a plastic casing, instead of the high-quality aluminum body you are by now used to; that’s not to say the iPhone 5C is not premium: it’s just aluminum vs this year’s plastic. Compared to the iPhone 5S, this year’s flagship, the 5C is “the lower end phone”, and that, according to reports, reflect in poorer sales.

The Wall Street Journal report is citing anonymous sources and “people familiar with the matters”, claiming that Apple has allegedly contacted its suppliers with smaller orders and subsequently, a reduction of these, for the last quarter of the year. Those quoted speculate on a certain “weaker-than-expected” market demand for last year’s flagship — this year’s budget solution — in a plastic case. Some of these aforementioned sources even claimed knowledge of the amount reported as a reduction: “by less than 20%”, which, is still, a fifth, if these reports are anywhere close to the truth.
