The source says that Apple will stop producing the iPhone 11 after the announcement of the iPhone 14 series in September. Recall that Apple discontinued the production of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone XR after the presentation of the iPhone 13 last year. In addition, the company has completed the release of the iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in 2020, and is now considering phasing out the remaining two iPhone 11 models.
According to LeaksApplePro, Apple has not yet made a final decision, which will largely depend on the success of the new iPhone SE. The iPhone SE 2022 launched last month, and while it features the new A15 Bionic platform and offers 5G connectivity, it doesn’t sell as well due to its old-school design. The phone starts at $429, and the company doesn’t want to see iPhone SE 2022 sales hurt by the older model.
iDrop News reports that demand for the iPhone 11 skyrocketed after the launch of the iPhone SE, likely because people would rather spend $70 more for a more attractive dual camera phone with a fast enough platform instead of getting the SE just for 5G. which is not so useful right now.
The iPhone 12, which starts at $699 in the US, will most likely not be discontinued. The Cupertino giant could drop its price to $599 after the release of the iPhone 14. It is not known if the iPhone 12 mini will also remain on sale. The source confirms that the iPhone 13 will also remain on sale.
