Apple doesn't believe in their products anymore, or is it a smart strategy

Something odd just happened and we cannot understand why.

Apple company has announced that they are cutting on their iPhone SE 2022 production by 20%.

They try to hide behind the fact that there is a war and the demand is not as high as they wanted.

However the reason might be different, so leaks claim that Apple doesn't believe in their product and don't want to promote it.

Apple also cut orders for AirPods by more than 10 million units for all of 2022, because the demand for earphones isn't as high as they wanted and need to reduce inventories.
Apple shipped 76.8 million units of AirPods last year.

We don't know why but we get a feeling that Apple is in some kid of hard situation and doesn't know a solution to it.
