Apple might release a mini iPhone 14 as a curveball


The iPhone 14 series is supposedly going to be unveiled by Apple next month, and iOS 16 work is also reportedly complete. Compared to Android manufacturers, Apple is typically more secretive about its products and doesn’t provide marketing materials to its retail partners prior to launch. The business probably gives fundamental information so that wholesale clients can get ready for launch.

Over the weekend, one of the company’s Asian partners passed along some information that momentarily caught everyone off guard. Since the sales of the iPhone 12 small and iPhone 13 mini were disappointing, it has been reported that Apple has removed the mini from the iPhone 14 lineup. The company is anticipated to introduce a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max rather than a 5.4-inch iPhone 14 small.

The mini has reportedly been discontinued, and while this may come as a disappointment to those who valued its large screen and one-handed use, Apple has no compelling reason to bring it back. Several rumors, leaked schematics, and supposed case and dummy unit photographs support this.

According to a Consumer Research Intelligence Partners (CIRP) survey from April, the iPhone 13 mini made up only three percent of all iPhone sales in the March quarter. The speculated 5.7-inch iPhone SE, which is anticipated to be released next year, will have to suffice for fans of smaller phones. The greatest compact phones of 2022 from other manufacturers may be of interest to people who have a fondness for small phones in the interim.

The aforementioned revelation by trustworthy leaker Evan Blass, which claimed that an Asian source had said that the iPhone 14 range will consist of the iPhone 14 small, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, sparked a glimmer of hope. He was reasonably certain of the information’s accuracy at the time. The article also suggested that new iPads will likely be released next month, which conflicts with a rumor that claims new Apple slates will be unveiled in October.

Blass quickly updated the story after it received negative feedback, stating that a different source had verified that Apple was working on an iPhone 14 Max. Although it still doesn’t mention that the Asian partner has changed its mind, there may be some hope left that Apple would introduce a tiny model. Alternatively, it may have been an error on their part, which seems extremely possible.

By the reports, Apple Watch models and the iPhone 14 range will be unveiled on September 7 and go on sale on September 16.
