Define "flop" in this case. Why is it a flop? It's last years's iPhone 5 in a colored plastic case. And it's selling better than the iPhone 4S did when it was replaced one year ago.If Apple discovers than the ratio of 5s to 5c demand is different than initially predicted, of course they're going to tweak future orders to meet where the customer demand is. Don't confuse supply chain balancing for "flop."
