Apple would have reduced the production of its iPhone SE 2022. According to a Monday report from Nikkei Asia, the tech giant is asking suppliers to cut production by 2-3 million units, or around 20%, for the next quarter.

The decision is believed to be the result of lower-than-expected demand for the $429 iPhone SE. Nikkei Asia quotes the war in ukraine and inflation as two of the possible reasons for people’s declining appetite for new smartphone purchases.

the new iPhone SE, which was announced at Apple’s “Peek Performance” event on March 8, has been on the market for less than a month. The 2022 version of the iPhone is the successor to the 2020 modeland is equipped with the A15 Bionic processor from the iPhone 13 and 5G support.

Apple did not immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment.
