The Apple iPhone 13 mini might be Apple’s last “mini” iPhone. Jon Prosser, who runs the YouTube channel Front Page Tech and is known for his popular Apple leaks, has revealed this new development. Because of the disappointing reaction to the iPhone 12 mini, Jon Prosser predicts Apple will not release an iPhone 14 mini.
The Apple iPhone 12 mini was unveiled almost all of the iPhone 12 lineup as a new, compact, and more affordable iPhone with the best hardware of the year for people who prefer small phones. However, sale prices of the iPhone 12 mini fall far short of Apple’s expectations, involving Jon Prosser to say that the iPhone 13 mini will be the company’s actual “mini” iPhone.
Is it true that Apple iPhone 13 mini is the last chance to buy a mini iPhone?
Along with the Apple iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, the iPhone 12 mini was released in 2020. The Apple iPhone 12 mini was released with the goal of providing top-of-the-line iPhone hardware in a compact, more portable package at a lower starting price than the basic iPhone 12 models. With the release of the Apple iPhone 13 mini, the same idea has been extended to the Apple iPhone 13 lineup.
However, well-known Apple leaker Jon Prosser has publicly confirmed that an iPhone 14 mini would not be released until 2022 and that Apple will discontinue the “mini” lineup completely.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in June that the iPhone 14 lineup from 2022 will be unavailable for the “mini” variant. His predictions are based on the iPhone 12 mini’s low sales volume. We’ll have to wait and see how the new Apple iPhone 13 mini does in terms of sales.
Apple will introduce four versions, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, despite eliminating the “mini” from the lineup. Apple will release two high-end models and two low-end versions in the iPhone 14 series in 2022, according to Kuo. The high-end and low-end versions are likely to have screens of 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches, respectively.
