Default iPhone 5: Weak demand forces Apple to cut orders, WSJ reports

So, um...Samsung surging, iPhone 5 slumping. Yeh, Apple is still dominating!

Quote:
“iPhone” and “weak demand” aren’t often seen in the same sentence, but a Wall Street Journal report on Sunday says the Cupertino company has been forced to cut orders of various iPhone 5 components due to “weaker-than-expected demand.”

Apple has reportedly ordered a drastic cut in orders for iPhone 5 components. According to the Wall Street Journal, the move comes in response to “weaker-than-expected demand” for the tech company’s handset.

The WSJ said it had received its information from “people familiar with the situation”. The source said the decision to reduce output had been made for the current January-to-March quarter and included a cut in orders for the handset’s screen, among other components. The report claimed Apple now only required “roughly half of what the company had previously planned to order.”

According to Reuters, news outlet Nikkei reported similar information this weekend, claiming several iPhone display manufacturers in Japan “expected to temporarily reduce output by 70 percent to 80 percent compared to the October to December period.”

These reports tally with a Business Insider piece earlier this month which linked Apple’s stock price drop in December to analysts’ claims that the Cupertino company was scaling back production of the iPhone 5 in 2013’s first quarter.

Though weaker-than-expected demand may well be the reason Apple has had to reassess its original order, other factors could be at play. As Business Insider suggested, it might simply be that, following reports of a problematic start with iPhone 5 production when it launched in September 2012, Apple got back on track late last year and ended up manufacturing more handsets than expected.

Alternatively, it may be that the tech giant is gearing up to launch an iPhone 5S or 6 in the middle of this year, though of course nothing’s certain on this matter. There has, however, already been a fair amount of talk about such a release date for the next version of Apple’s handset, and as we’ve seen in the past with the iPhone, when the rumor mill gets going, demand for the current device typically falls as consumers wait for the latest iteration to appear.

Either way, it’s not as if sales of the iPhone are about to crash through the floor. Despite stiff competition from rivals such as Samsung, Apple continues to hold strong in the smartphone market. Figures published by comScore at the start of the year showed that in the US it actually increased its OEM market share by 1.4 percent for the three-month period ending in November over the previous three-month period. Samsung, in comparison, managed a 1.2 percent increase.

Demand is deinitely waning, but that doesn't mean Android is winning people over. From what I see, people aren't upgrading their iphones every year anymore, as the differences between the models decrease every year. Just like macbooks, no need to go run and buy the new one every year at this point.

Android devices are steadily increasing their market share. How could you POSSIBLY say that they arent winning anyone over?

I love apple but even i can't see the appeal of iphone 5. Its basically just iphone 4s s. OOOO it has a .04 inch bigger screen, basically looks the same and the OS has been the same for 5 years. They need to do something revolutionary again.
