Apple’s iPhone mini was first introduced in 2013 and was hugely successful. The following two models were also prevalent, but the redesign of the phone in 2017 made it less popular with many users.
Many people feel that the iPhone mini’s death is akin to the end of an era. Apple has continued selling all of the past models.
Still, experts predict a slowdown in sales for all phones as consumers continue to gravitate toward larger devices like their phablets or laptops instead of traditional cellular telephones or smartphones.
Has iPhone 14 mini been discontinued?
Apple has not yet discontinued the iPhone Mini. But according to the insider information, the company might discontinue it in the coming months.
In any case, Apple is still selling millions and millions of iPhones every quarter—but its market share has been steadily declining since 2014 when it reached an all-time high of almost 14%. It’s now down to just above 9%.
iPhone Mini was not included in iPhone 14 line-up
Recently at the Far Out event, iPhone 14 was released with no signs of an announcement for the Mini version. However, there are rumors which suggest that the Flip version is to be announced at the next event.
Apple iPhone mini was first introduced in 2013 and was a huge success.
Apple iPhone mini was first introduced in 2013 and was a huge success. It was the first time Apple had made a smaller phone, and it was loved by those with smaller hands. The iPhone mini is also popular with women, who were often disappointed by the size of other iPhones.
The following two models were also top-rated.
The iPhone mini 2 and 3 were also very popular, but the next generation of iPhones, the iPhone 7 and 8, were not. As a result, the iPhone mini was discontinued in 2017. The iPhone 12 mini was released in 2018 but did not sell well.
The redesign of the phone in 2017 made it less popular with many users.
In 2017, Apple redesigned the iPhone mini. However, the redesign was unpopular with many users because it was too big and had fewer features. It also had a different design than earlier models.
Many people feel that the iPhone mini’s death is akin to the end of an era.
People who miss the iPhone mini, and plenty of them, are often quick to point out that Apple discontinued the device without a natural explanation. One theory is that it was a power play by Apple CEO Tim Cook.
He was reportedly upset about his predecessor Steve Jobs’s decision to launch an iPhone 5c model in 2013 (the 5c didn’t sell as well as hoped). So perhaps Mr. Cook thought he could regain some of Mr. Jobs’ credibility by killing off his last pet project: the smaller phone?
In any case, many people feel that this popular device’s death signals something larger: either the death or decline of small phones in general or maybe even the end of an era in which mobile devices were easily accessible to everyone regardless of their size or hand strength.
Apple has continued selling all of the past models.
The new SE has many of the same features found in other iPhones: It has Face ID (a feature introduced with Face ID on the larger XS at WWDC 2018), dual cameras for selfies and photos (like those used on last year’s XR), wireless charging capability (first introduced in the previous year) and more RAM than before (upgradeable up to 512GB).
The only change seems to be that this phone comes with 64GB instead of 32GB storage capacity as standard – which means users won’t need as much memory expansion through microSD cards or cloud storage services such as iCloud Photo Library or Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive.
Apple is known for being strict regarding product designs, which may be one of the reasons behind the discontinuation of the iPhone mini.
If a new design does not work as well as the previous one, then Apple will stop producing that product line instead of trying to fix it. This happened with the iPhone mini’s successor model, which failed to impress consumers who were used to larger screens.
