The fact that a story has been repeated doesn't mean anything other than: it is good gossip.

And the story hasn't been verified. You have anonymous sources telling Nikkei that Apple places orders for the whole quarter, and you have anonymous sources telling the analyst that Apple places orders for each month. The stories contradict each other.

Then there would have been a range instead of the 19 million number as well.


And back to why the rumors are negative. It is possible that Apple doesn't think that it can sell more than 11 million iPhone5s per month after the winter holidays: Apple is DOOMED!!!!!!!!
