With the launch of the iPhone 14, Apple was already buzzing. Reportedly, several old iPhones could be destroyed. However, Apple has not made any official announcement regarding the discontinuation of previous iPhone models.
According to reports, Apple may get rid of older iPhones, especially the iPhone 11 after the launch of the iPhone 14. The American tech giant tends to follow this norm to ensure that sales of new models are not affected.
Here is a list of iPhone models whose existence has been questioned before the iPhone 14 launch.
According to reports from iDropNews, Apply may drop the iPhone 11 because it will prevent the sale of the new iPhone SE 3. In addition, the iPhone 11 does not support 5G. The claim was backed up by a report from Tom’s Guide, which said: “Apply also rarely keeps phones for more than three years after the release date. Introduced in September 2019, the iPhone 11 is fast approaching its on-sale date, so it’s pretty certain that it will be discontinued this fall.”
iPhone 12 mini
Apple is expected to avoid the iPhone 14 mini in favor of a new large iPhone 14 Max or Plus, as the mini version previously failed to meet the company’s expectations in terms of sales. While keeping this in mind, Apple may also discontinue the iPhone 12 mini.
iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max
Analyzing Apple’s past patterns, it is believed that the tech giant may destroy the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Significantly, since the launch of the Pro and Pro Max models in 2019, Apple has never kept any of its Pro versions for more than a year. In addition, the latest iPhone 14 is expected to get the same chipset of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Meanwhile, with Apple’s much-anticipated launch likely to take place soon, several rumors are circulating about the upcoming iPhone 14 series phones, and the latest suggests that the Pro models will revive the classic iOS battery percentage indicator.
