Apple to cut iPhone, AirPods output

CNA – Apple Inc is planning to cut the output of its iPhone and AirPods devices as the Ukraine crisis and looming inflation start to weigh on demand for consumer electronics, the Nikkei reported yesterday, citing sources.

The company plans to make about 20 per cent fewer iPhone SEs next quarter, or lower production orders by about two million to three million units than originally planned, due to weaker-than-expected demand, Nikkei said.

The United States (US) tech giant also reduced orders for its AirPods wireless headphones by more than 10 million units for all of 2022, as it scales back the level of inventories due to lukewarm demand, the newspaper said.

Earlier this month, Apple unveiled 5G connectivity to its iPhone SE, its low-cost model aimed mostly at buyers in emerging markets.
