Apple Ending iPhone 5C Production Early?
Apple released the iPhone 5C to mixed reactions. Some liked it, but others, myself included, didn’t see the point. Tim Cook admitted that the 5C didn’t meet it’s sales expectations last year and we already know that the company sat on a huge inventory early on in the device’s life cycle. So why do they still make it? According to reports, they won’t be for much longer.
Taiwan’s Industrial & Commercial Times is stating that Apple will end production of the iPhone 5C by the middle of 2015. The main reason for this is supposedly because Apple wants it’s suppliers, Foxconn and Wistron, focusing on the current and next generation iPhones rather than ones that are not contributing to the company’s profits.
For now this is not confirmed, but based on the facts, it sure seems like this could certainly be the case. What are your thoughts?
