Recent reports by Nikkei and The Wall Street Journal suggested so.

However, analysts do are not so worried about this information and do not associate it with weak demand for the iPhone 5.

Sterne Agee analyst Shaw Wu says “iPhone 5 demand remains robust.”

He adds that component orders are lower due to “much improved yields meaning lower component builds and supplier shifts.”

Baird analyst William Power seems to be of the same opinion, saying that he was ”actually raising our calendar fourth quarter iPhone forecast slightly,” and adding that “most demand indicators remain favorable.”

In addition, speaking with The New York Times, NPD DisplaySearch analyst Paul Semenza said that his sources indicated that Apple did reduce display orders for January, but not by half as it was reported.

He explained that Cueprtino cut iPhone 5 display orders for January from 19 million to between 11 million and 14 million.

On Monday, news about iPhone 5 reduced orders caused Apple shares to drop below $500.
