Apple has announced that it will reduce the production of its iPhones and AirPods as the Ukraine crisis and impending inflation weigh on consumer electronics demand.

As a result of weaker-than-expected demand for the iPhone SE, Apple plans to reduce production orders by up to 2 million to 3 million units in the first quarter of 2016, the Japanese newspaper Nikkei reported on Monday.

Apple has also slashed orders for its AirPods wireless headphones by more than 10 million units for the entire year of 2022 because of lukewarm demand, the tech giant said.

Earlier this month, Apple announced 5G support for the iPhone SE, a low-cost model aimed primarily at customers in emerging markets.

From the second quarter of 2020 through the end of 2021, the earlier 4G iPhone SE accounted for 12 percent of total iPhone sales, with Japan being the second-largest market after the United States, according to counterpoint research.

Several million fewer units of the entire iPhone 13 line were requested from suppliers than originally planned, but this adjustment was based on seasonal demand, according to the report.
