Even though iPhone Mini 12 sales only sell for 5 percent of total sales, Apple will continue to produce iPhone Mini 13. This year, Apple will also get rid of the SE series. For that, sales of the iPhone 13 Mini will be even better.
The reason is, the benchmark price of the iPhone SE is cheaper than iPhone 12 Mini. Thus, the mobile phone takes up the Mini series market. At least customers can save US $ 300 by buying SE instead of Mini.
In order to save up to $300, customers are willing not to get Apple’s latest Bionic A14 chipset and choose to keep using the A13 embedded in the SE. They also chose not to get 5G which makes the Mini more expensive and more power intensive, as reported by Notebook Check.
Reasons for Apple Not Producing the iPhone 12 Mini
Recently, reports emerged that Apple discontinued production of the iPhone 12 mini. The reason for stopping production is because the company has met sales needs for the whole year. This has led to speculation that the cellphone sales will not meet the company’s projections.
However, Apple is said to be launching a mini version for the iPhone 13 lineup in 2021, as revealed by Jon Prosser, who often gives leaks about Apple.
Possibility Apple will still sell the iPhone 12 Mini as a commitment to provide a choice of mobile phones with a smaller size.
However, there is a possibility that Apple will not continue production of the iPhone SE this year. Because this product is in a price range similar to the iPhone Mini.
Some reports say this doesn’t mark the end of the iPhone SE’s life, at least not this year. It is likely that Apple will launch the iPhone SE Plus, as quoted by GizmoChina.
