Perhaps I may not share this in public but there were couple of Apple's vendors seized their operations due to lack of demand since iPhone 5. Demand in other parts of world is still low. Don't compare that with Nexus or Motorola. They produced in limited quantities unlike iphones.

next to none of what you have said makes sense ...
its customer service 101 under promise over deliver
there is less demand for the 5c so the lower production and increase production of the 5s more demand means they need to produce more
AND what does this have to do with any Android device
if you dont like Apple why read it??? your wasting your time !!!!
I dont like Apple but i work in the Mobile industry and try to keep up with what happens
you dont ever see me posting Hate

If past performance can be applied here, the phone were most likely shipped in less than two weeks. Simple customer delighter while covering any unforeseen problems that may occur in tight pipelines normally associated with a launch. Bringing it down to 3-5 days as soon as possible would be the ultimate goal because it would reduce balking.

The wait time to stay at 2-3 weeks? Apple has a pretty well run supply chain. It's actually quite famous. Maybe you should read up more on it.

Also, Nexus devices are always out of stock. Does that mean they are selling in millions? No!
