It appears that Apple’s cheaper iPhone 5C model overall sales have been disappointed the Cupertino based company and failed to attract the customers. Now news are coming from South Korea via Digitimes which claims that the Apple is going to stop the productions of cheaper iPhone 5C models at Foxcon’s factory in Zhengzhou, northern China keeping the decreasing demand in mind.
The company will now use Foxcon’s factory to manufacture iPhone 5S models which has been in short supply since the two models launched.
According to report, initially, 70% of iPhone 5C manufacturing was contracted to Pegatron, while Foxconn was given the rest of the share. However, Apple reduced the iPhone 5C volumes at Pegatron by 20% and Foxconn by 30% later.
Apple had launched iPhone 5S and cheaper sibling iPhone 5C back in September this year. While iPhone 5S is still a huge hit, iPhone has lost its ground and constantly loosing its traction. People are reportedly buying iPhone 5C only because iPhone 5S are out of stock. The company is looking forward to initiate a buyback plan for the iPhone 5C in order to boost its sales.
