Apple plans to drastically reduce the price of iPhone 12/12 mini

Currently, Apple has a lot of iPhone models for sale. The cheapest is the newly released iPhone SE 3, which starts at $429. However, if you have more money, you can pick up the iPhone 11 for $499, the iPhone 12 for $699 and even the iPhone 13 for $785 (lower price in China). According to iDropNews, Apple began planning to integrate the product line after the release of the iPhone 14 in the fall. The company will not only discontinue the iPhone 11, but also cut the price of the iPhone 12 from $699 to $599. As for the iPhone 12 mini, the price of this device starts at $499.

These marketing actions were reflected in previous generations of new iPhones. From the latest report, it appears that Apple is not planning to change course this year. Coming back to the iPhone 14 series, according to recent reports, the four models of this year are completely different. The first is that the company will stop production of the 5.4-inch mini model. However, it will now have two 6.1-inch and two 6.7-inch models. The four models will be the iPhone 14, 14 Max, 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.

Moreover, the Apple iPhone 14/14 Max will continue the small design of the iPhone 13 series. However, the iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max will now use a double-hole model to achieve a higher screen ratio. Again, only the 14 Pro screen is provided exclusively by Samsung, the other three are available for LG or even BOE.
