GSMArena on a new report from Ming-Chi Kuo:
Starting with next year’s iPhone 14 lineup — it will consist of
two 6.1-inch iPhones and two 6.7-inch iPhones. That means that
Apple will stop making the 5.4-inch iPhone mini starting from next
year — there will still be an iPhone 13 mini in 2021, but it’s
expected to be made in lower quantities.
Say it ain’t so — I love the Mini.
Update: Here are some not-so-good usage numbers from David Smith. But I’ll offer one reason to hold out hope. I think you need to see and feel the iPhone 12 Mini to truly grok just how much smaller and lighter it is, while still having the same A14 chip and same camera system as the regular iPhone 12. Yet almost no one has been able or willing to go to stores to play with phones since it’s been out because of the pandemic. You tell people it’s 5.4 inches diagonal instead of 6.1 and sure, that sounds smaller. But you pick it up and hold it and use it and it’s like, Holy shit, this is so nice and small.
