Has the iPhone 12 mini been discontinued last week? Or make way for the iPhone 13

According to news on June 28, every September is the time for Apple’s autumn conference. If there are no surprises, the iPhone 13 series will also meet with us in September. In accordance with the practice of previous years, Apple will conduct mass production in the first few months of the new product release. According to previous information, this year’s iPhone 13 series will consist of four models: iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Due to the tight supply of raw materials and the new crown epidemic, the production capacity of Foxconn and other foundry companies this year has been reduced compared with the past. According to relevant bloggers, the iPhone 12 mini model has been confirmed to be discontinued last week, and this is the voluntary discontinuation of Apple. It is reported that the iPhone 12 mini has been severely reduced in production in February before the discontinuation.

Earlier data showed that the sales of iPhone 12 mini was the worst in the 12 series, far below Apple’s expectations. On the one hand, the hastily discontinued production was to give up the production line for the iPhone 13 series released in September. On the other hand, it can also be seen that Apple is not satisfied with the performance of the mini series.

According to market feedback, battery life is the most important factor hindering users from buying iPhone 12 mini. Due to the 5.4-inch screen and the lack of internal space due to 5G technology, the battery capacity of the iPhone 12 mini is only 2227mAh, which is indeed stretched for daily use.

The battery life issue caused the iPhone 12 mini to be unpopular, but due to Apple’s long R&D cycle, there will still be a mini product line in the upcoming iPhone 13 series. According to previous news, the iPhone 13 mini is likely to be the swan song of the mini product line. Due to poor sales, Apple will completely abandon the mini products in the iPhone 14 series.
