According to reports out of Japan, Apple is planning on cutting back production of the iPhone 7 due to sluggish demand.

Citing data from Apple suppliers, Japanese newspaper Nikkei reported on Friday that "sluggish sales" of the iPhone 7 lineup have come in softer than Apple expected. Somewhat confusingly, the report said that Apple plans to cut production of both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. But it also notes that Apple has not been able to meet demand for the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus due to a shortage of camera sensors, noting that the jumbo-sized handset "remains popular."
