Apple to discontinue iPhone 13 mini after Wonderlust event

Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 15 series on September 12, along with other new devices. However, this also means that some older models will be phased out, including the iPhone 13 mini, which was a flop among consumers.

The iPhone 13 mini, which had a 5.4-inch screen, was introduced last year as a small-screen option for iPhone fans. However, it reportedly saw low demand and stock. Apple will stop selling it after the Wonderlust event, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.

Apple did not release an iPhone 14 mini this year, and there is no sign of an iPhone 15 mini either. This suggests that Apple is giving up on its mini line of iPhones after just two generations.

The only remaining small-screen iPhone will be the iPhone SE (2022), which has a 4.7-inch display and an outdated design and hardware. The iPhone SE features an A15 Bionic chip, which is two generations behind the latest A17 chip that powers the iPhone 15 series.

The iPhone SE is also not updated regularly by Apple. The first iPhone SE was released in 2016, followed by the second one in 2020. The third one is expected to launch in 2025, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Some reports claim that the next iPhone SE will have a larger 6.1-inch display, which would make it similar to the current iPhone 14. This means that the small-screen iPhone experience could soon become extinct.

The upcoming iPhone 15 series is expected to have seven major design changes, such as a smaller notch, a faster refresh rate, a larger battery, a better camera system, a new color option, a stronger glass protection, and a MagSafe charger.
