Foxconn Switches Whole Plant from iPhone 5C to iPhone 5S

A new report from the Asian supply chain says that Foxconn is dramatically shifting resources from iPhone 5C to iPhone 5S.

Is the iPhone 5C a failure? It is hard to find out if the iPhone 5C is a new hit for Apple or is just not getting traction compared to the iPhone 5S. There is some evidence that suggests that the iPhone 5C demand is week.

The iPhone 5C ships within 24 hours and the iPhone 5S has a 1-2 weeks delay on the Apple store. Now Digitimes reports that Foxconn, Apple's manufacturing partner, is shifting an entire plant from making the iPhone 5C the the iPhone 5S.

The report claims that the Apple order cuts are due to weak demand for the iPhone 5C.

I thought the iPhone 5C would take off, but it seems it is not the case. Why? Nobody really wants a colorful bubble-gum phone?
