UPDATE 11/03: A new report is suggesting that Apple will be cutting its iPhone 12 mini production by 20% this year. Nikkei Asia is reporting that Apple is planning to cut the production of the smallest handset of the iPhone 12 family "as part of a broader adjustment to output plans". The mini won't be the only phone impacted, as Apple will also apparently be cutting orders for all iPhones by 20%.

However, the iPhone 12 mini is definitely bearing the brunt of the cuts, with Nikkei Asia reporting that the "mildest estimate was that Apple will cut planned production by more than 70% for the six months through June".
