    Default Foxconn Reportedly Told to Slow iPhone 5c Production


    It's no secret that Apple's iPhone 5c isn't the strong seller that its big brother (iPhone 5s) has proven to be. While the reasons for this reality are many, the fact remains that Apple has to adjust to the production demands of the moment. And, at the moment, production resources are best directed toward the iPhone 5s.

    Consequently, mew reports out of the far east suggest that Foxconn has been directed to pull one of its major plants off of iPhone 5c production. With the holidays fast approaching and demand for the iPhone 5s accelerating, Apple seems to be directing the bulk of its production muscle toward the product that Apple fans most want.

    Foxconn hasn't confirmed the speculation (and it goes without saying that Apple hasn't either) but Digitimes is standing by its report issued Monday morning.

    "Foxconn and Pegatron Technology have obtained OEM orders for 30% and 70%, respectively, of iPhone 5c production," the sources tells the publication. "One month ago, Apple lowered iPhone 5c orders to Pegatron by 20% and those to Foxconn by nearly one-third for the fourth quarter due to unsatisfactory sales, the sources indicated."

    I think they should solely focus on the iPhone 6 & not a "C" variant. More R&D into the 6 might produce a better phone than splitting the R&D on two variants! It's what we want!

    It's the "meow" game, not the "mew" game.

    With the specs it has the price is competitive.

    Are you kidding? For $200 less, you can get a Nexus 5 which has a 1080p screen and 2.3GHz quad core Krait processor.

    What are you talking about? It's a given every year a new iPhone well maybe 2 now launches in Sept. I was saying scrap the "C" series & focus solely on the "one" iPhone instead of spreading R&D & development costs on two so the end user ends up with a better iPhone.
