Supply Chain Sources Say Apple Has Cut Orders for iPhone 5C for Q4

Sources within the Apple supply chain have announced that Apple has been informing iPhone 5C manufacturers that it intends to cut orders of the cheaper smartphone for Q4 of 2013. The iPhone 5C sells for about $100 less than the high-end iPhone 5S. Both the iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5S were unveiled last month.

The iPhone 5C was Apple's attempt to go after the lower end smartphone market, but the price difference between it and the high-end iPhone 5S has proven to be small enough that most buyers are simply opting for the more expensive iPhone 5S. This is actually seen as a benefit for Apple by some and the company stock opened 0.8% higher despite producing orders for the low-end iPhone.

Apple has increased orders for the iPhone 5S. Despite the stock price rising and increased orders for the iPhone 5S, the production orders for the iPhone 5C is seen as a reinforcement to the sentiment that the iPhone 5C was overpriced and wouldn't be well received on the smartphone market.

"This reflects a failure in Apple's pricing strategy," said Bevan Yeh, a Taipei-based senior fund manager at Prudential Financial Securities Investment Trust. "The price differentiation between 5C and 5S is too small. It's an iPhone 5 with plastic casing and isn't worth the price."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
