Reports of Apple's dwindling iPhone 5C sales have been coming in for weeks now, and it appears that many of the rumors about Apple scaling back production on the device are true. A new report from Digitimes is claiming that Foxconn's Zhengzhou plant is halting all production lines building the colorful iPhone 5C.

The plant is said to be able to produce upwards of 9,000 iPhone 5C units per day, which means that halting its production lines further scales the devices daily production from a current 80,000 phones per day to just over 70,000. This puts 5C production drastically down from its high of 320,000 phones per day around launch. The device's poor sales numbers can be directly equated to its retail price of $549 off-contract, which is just $150 cheaper than the company's flagship, the iPhone 5S.
