More and more news continues to drift in suggesting that the iPhone 5c isn't quite the success Apple had hoped for. The latest comes from Chinese site C Technology (via MacRumors), which reports that Apple is still cutting back on orders in order to stay in line with the low demand for the lower-cost smartphone. According to their findings, Apple has told supply partner ProTek (Pegatron) to cut back from 320,000 units per day in October to a mere 80,000 units per day.
Apple is widely starting to be known primarily for its portable products (and, yes, we’re including laptops in that category), but you also have to give it recognition for its solid, sexy desk-bound models as well. There are some pretty sweet deals on these home computers this week, and we’ll show you where to find them.
If new research from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners is true, it looks as though more Android users are switching to iPhone than we've seen in the past. As AppleInsider reports, CIRP gained its data from interviews with 400 owners of the new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.

Well, the MacBook Air didn't get much love during Apple’s recent events, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of deals to go around to get you the lightest, best laptop around. Maybe people aren’t throwing over their Airs for the newest, freshest model like they are for iPads, but that doesn’t mean you’re not ready to rock these bargains.
Apple has focused a lot on color with the release of its latest devices, and now MacRumors reports that Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) has some fascinating information on how each color is faring. The results aren't as accurate as they could be, unfortunately, as factors like the "space gray" iPhone's overwhelming popularity stem partly from the shortages for the gold and silver varieties.
Rather than discount last year’s model with the introduction of the iPhone 5s, Apple opted to replace it—albeit with a gussied-up and slightly tweaked version. Indeed, the iPhone 5c packs nearly all of the same features and internal tech as last year’s iPhone 5, which makes it one heck of an excellent handset in almost every respect, from the glorious four-inch Retina display to the speedy 4G LTE service and stellar 8-megapixel camera.
As hard as it may be to believe, all of the hubbub that surrounded the release of the iPhone 5s now stands over a month behind us. Apple's flagship smartphone and its colorful sidekick the iPhone 5c are now firmly on their way to burrowing their own niche in Apple's landscape, but how many of Apple's users have the devices actually reached? As MacRumors reports, Localytics has some fascinating information for us in that regard.
