As expected, Apple has officially discontinued the iPhone 13 mini and will no longer sell it through its website. The 13 mini follows in the footsteps of the 12 mini a year ago. Apple had already slashed production multiple times due to low interest in the mini iPhone.
What seemed like a great idea at first – a truly tiny, modern iPhone, proved a dead end for Apple. People simply didn’t want small screen phones, they wanted a Plus to go along with the Pro Max.
Those few mini holdouts will be able to find a 13 mini in the third-party retailer space for a while longer, but the days of truly compact premium phones are now numbered.
Now, Apple’s smartphone lineup starts with the iPhone SE (2022) – $429/€529/£429/INR 49,900 – the iPhone 13 – $599/€729/£599/INR 59,900 – the iPhone 14 – $699/€849/£699/INR 69,900 – and iPhone 14 Plus – $799/€949/£799/INR 79,900 – and the new iPhone 15 models.
Apple will also keep selling the Watch SE alongside the new Series 9 and Watch Ultra 2. The Watch SE is $249/€279/£219/INR 29,900.
