Apple might discontinue iPhone 13 Mini

What To Know

  • Apple is reportedly considering discontinuing the iPhone 13, a move expected to coincide with the unveiling of the iPhone 15 during tomorrow’s event on September 12, marking two years since its initial release.
  • According to information from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, there is currently a shortage of iPhone 13 Mini units in stock, resulting in extended shipping times of two to three weeks for those ordering from Apple’s U.
  • This scarcity could signal the beginning of the end for the iPhone 13 Mini, with Apple potentially ceasing its sales once the iPhone 15 lineup is launched, as reported by MacRumors.
  • On a positive note, the iPhone SE 4 is anticipated to adopt rounded corners and a notch design similar to the iPhone 13 Mini.

If you happen to be a fan of more compact smartphones, your choices for purchasing the iPhone 13 Mini may soon become limited. Apple is reportedly considering discontinuing the iPhone 13, a move expected to coincide with the unveiling of the iPhone 15 during tomorrow’s event on September 12, marking two years since its initial release.

According to information from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, there is currently a shortage of iPhone 13 Mini units in stock, resulting in extended shipping times of two to three weeks for those ordering from Apple’s U.S. online store.

This scarcity could signal the beginning of the end for the iPhone 13 Mini, with Apple potentially ceasing its sales once the iPhone 15 lineup is launched, as reported by MacRumors.

The sales performance of the iPhone 13 Mini models has not been particularly impressive since their introduction, which serves as a compelling rationale for Apple to discontinue this smaller variant.

Lackluster sales figures had previously prompted Apple to halt production of the iPhone 12 Mini just one year after its official debut. In light of the underwhelming reception of “Mini” iPhones, Apple chose not to release an iPhone 14 last year and may continue this trend until there is a notable demand for more compact phones.

With the discontinuation of the iPhone 13, users seeking an entry-level option will be left with the “SE” models as their sole choice. However, it is unlikely that the upcoming iPhone SE 4 will feature the same 5.4-inch screen found in the iPhone 13, as rumors suggest a larger 6.1-inch display for the former.

On a positive note, the iPhone SE 4 is anticipated to adopt rounded corners and a notch design similar to the iPhone 13 Mini.
