Many were the users who when Apple introduced the iPhone 12 mini they said that this model was for them. But, one thing is to see how its size fits perfectly in our pocket / hand, and another thing is to see how this small screen does not allow us to enjoy, or clearly see what is shown on it.
A few days ago, a rumor suggested that Apple was starting to use the mini iPhone 12 production lines for iPhone 12, terminal which sold better. The weak sales of the mini iPhone 12 model are prompting Tim Cook’s company to consider stopping manufacturing.
According to analyst William Yang of JP Morgan (via Apple Insider), Apple is adjusting some of the forecasts for the current iPhone 12 series and the upcoming iPhone 13 series and will continue to manufacture more iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 Pro and even will increase production of iPhone 11
The The iPhone 12 also didn’t get the demand expected from Apple. Apple has cut production of the iPhone 12 by 9 million units, analysts said. The features of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro are quite similar, with the former having better demand despite being $ 200 more expensive.
Due to weak demand in the market, Yang says the iPhone 12 mini’s supply chain may stop manufacturing by the second quarter of 2021.
Yang also claims that Tim Cook’s company could launch 3rd generation iPhone SE in the first half of 2022, with a design very similar to the one it shows today and that in addition it could also launch a low-cost version of the iPhone 11 next year.
