According to foreign sources, Apple halves orders for delivery iPhone 5c. Experts say the two main reasons for the decline in output smartphone: the instability in the economy and volatile consumer demand and inflated price for the model.
Originally Californian giant had planned to release 300,000 phones iPhone 5c per day, but now the order is made on the assembly only 150,000 units. Reported by C-Technology with reference to “Asian counterparts.” Analysts say that the decline in orders from Apple will immediately affect the financial performance of its Asian partners. The American company this information has not commented.
This year, Apple introduced two smartphones at once: an updated version of the previous flagship – iPhone 5s, as well as the iPhone 5c in a plastic case, which was very similar to last year’s model iPhone 5, with the exception of the materials used. It was expected that the device will be positioned as a budget smartphone, but that did not happen, and the price of iPhone 5c proved to be quite high – $ 549 for a model with 16 GB of internal memory.
After the presentation of news experts have criticized Apple for too high a price for a new iPhone 5c. In particular, senior analyst at Mobile Research Group Eldar Murtazin said that the corporation “run by lost touch with the reality of the people.” In his microblog, he wrote that $ 549 for a younger version of the smartphone iPhone 5c – too high a price.
“Tim Cook apparently really wants to become the second Scully remembered the destruction of EPL. Another reason I do not see inadequacy, “- wrote Murtazin.
According to experts, the level of the iPhone 5s in the first weekend sales of iPhone 5c exceeded by 3.4 times. Later, retailers went on quite an unusual step – reducing the cost of the device . Some, by the way, the price dropped by half, which has never been in the history of iPhone. It is assumed that such a move would increase the buying interest in the model, but is it, time will tell.
