Pegatron Corp, a major manufacturer of Apple's new phone, had iPhone 5C orders reduced by less than 20%, the source told Reuters on Wednesday.

Hon Hai Precision Industry Co, Apple's other manufacturer of the iPhone 5C, has had its orders for the same period reduced by a third, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The 5C is a slightly cheaper alternative to the premium 5S model.

Pegatron and Hon Hai declined to comment, while Apple could not be immediately reached for comment.
