Beloved by many, the 12 and 13 minis held the power and prestige of the iPhone in a small form-factor. While the 5.4-inch screen size will be gone, Apple will instead focus on its 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screen iPhones. The reasoning for the discontinuation indicates the iPhone 12 and 13 mini did not sell as well as Apple had anticipated. Additionally, production was previously cut for the 12 mini due to it’s slow sales.
The models that will be part of the portfolio for the impending iPhone 14 have been the subject of rumours. There may be an iPhone 14, an iPhone 14 Pro, an iPhone 14 Plus (or Max), and an iPhone 14 Pro Max, according to reports. This year, unlike the previous two, it appears that Apple will stop making the mini in September. So there won’t be an iPhone 14 tiny, which is bad for those who prefer the smaller design.
As the launch of the iPhone 14 lineup is vastly approaching, analysts are predicting strong demand. However, would the absence of an iPhone 14 mini model significantly impact sales? Probably not, but only time will tell. With no iPhone 14 mini, do you still plan to upgrade this fall? Vote in our poll and see what others say below.
