This news might come to you as a surprise, but Apple seems to have cut down on the production of one its newest smartphones in the market, the Apple iPhone 5C. There have already been rumors in the past indicating that Apple has plans to lower production of the iPhone 5C.
This time, the new update comes from DigiTimes, saying that the Apple iPhone 5C production has taken yet another hit! It is being said that the Apple iPhone 5C is not doing so well in the market, there has been no overwhelming response from consumers and as a result of which, the smartphone has not been able to do well in the market.
Apple launched the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C at the same time, but there are a number of differences between these two smartphones! The Apple iPhone 5S is definitely a premium smartphone and comes loaded with features that attracts consumers and makes them pay. But that is not exactly the case with the Apple iPhone 5C. The Apple iPhone 5C is very much similar to the previous flagship model, the Apple iPhone 5 and comes with a plastic body! Let us not forget that it does not even feature the Apple A7 chipset that enables 64-bit processing.
So coming back to the iPhone 5C production plan, the report says that Apple is cutting down the iPhone 5C production in Foxconn’s Zhengzhou factory. The factory used to produce 50,000 units per day but this figure has been brought down to just 8,000 per day. Interesting enough, there is another report saying that Foxconn’s Zhengzhou factory will completely stop producing iPhone 5C units and will switch to iPhone 5S instead.
As of today, the Apple iPhone 5S has been doing great in the market. Almost every Apple fan and consumer dreams about owning that smartphone one day. But we can’t say the same when it comes to the Apple iPhone 5C. A number of consumers as well as tech gurus believe that the Apple iPhone 5C has been extremely overpriced! As a result of this, many consumers simply put in the extra money and opt for the Apple iPhone 5S, some consumers turn to the Apple iPhone 5 while many others (whose dreams of a ‘low priced iPhone’ have been shattered) turn to Android or Windows.
We do not have the exact numbers for the abovementioned statements, but we can bet on the iPhone 5C part. Now if you talk about strategy, you are about to hear something that might blow you away! ‘Apple might have come up with the iPhone 5C only in order to make consumers focus on the iPhone 5S and ensure that their new flagship model gets all the attention!’
Yes, what we mean to say is that the Apple iPhone 5C might just be bait, a part of the master plan to promote the iPhone 5S all over the world! And if you still doubt about the abovementioned plan, you must know that Apple has had great sales and the company earnings are very high in spite of the low performance of the Apple iPhone 5C.
So we now ask you the same question – What do you think about the Apple iPhone 5C? If you had an option to choose between the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S, which one would you go for and why? Should Apple completely stop producing the iPhone 5C and just focus on the iPhone 5S and the two new iPad models?
