Apple slashes orders for iPhone 5C According to the WSJ, Apple has slashed orders for the less popular iPhone 5C for the Q4.
Sources say Apple has told its two manufacturers to reduce orders, as it appears demand is not what was expected for the smartphone.

Apple released the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S last month in 11 markets, with a global expansion expected for this month and next. The flagship 5S features a 64-bit processor and a fingerprint scanner and sells for $100 more the iPhone 5C, which has last year's specs but new colorful backplates.

Pegatron and Hon Hai (the parent of Foxconn) will cut orders by 20 and 30 percent, respectively.

In addition, a component supplier was reportedly told that iPhone 5C part orders would be cut by 50 percent, suggesting that shipments will likely slow well into the new year.

On the other hand, Apple has been quickly increasing iPhone 5S orders ahead of the holiday.

I think Steve Jobs has cursed the 5C from his grave.

People are not as stupid as apple thinks...the 5c was no more than a 5 with a colorful plastic case!

And the "S" in 5s stands for more of the same. Our company has only sold one 5c so far and it was returned today. I see free as the price tag very soon.

Agreed and priced at the same level, not at $300/300 and people have seen through it
