Apple orders to cut down iPhone 5c production

It has been quite a few weeks that reliable sources have come up with the news that Apple is trimming down its production of iPhone 5c while trying to boost up the production of 5s. The reports were made public by NPD DisplaySearch, C technology (Chinese website), and finally, The Wall Street Journal.

For now, the statistics vary on how far the trimmimng will be done on the production of iPhone 5c, but reports say that Apple has already ordered to reduce iPhone 5c production by 35%, while the production of the more expensive iPhone 5s got a 75% boost.  

The reason behind this decision - though not officially known - can be related to the market acceptance of the two sets, release time, and phone specifications. It seems like customers have embraced the pricier version of the iPhone as the new iPhone 5s has a 64-bit processor, new camera, dual-LED flash, and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the home button. Where else the iPhone 5C is almost similar to iPhone 5, with little variance in the colorful plastic backs and slightly different cellular antennas.

Moreover, according to NPD analysts Tina Teng and Shawn Lee, "If Chinese carriers allocated a higher subsidy to new iPhone 5C subscribers, they would have less to subsidize other brands' devices. Perhaps Apple miscalculated the launch timing, considering they were aiming at the China market", resultant of which has led to fewer demands for the iPhone 5c and the subsequent order to trim the production.
