According to a report by iDropNews, Apple may decide to discontinue the iPhone 11 once the iPhone 14 is released to the public (highlighted first by TOI).
According to a report published by the Wall Street Journal, Apple is expected to discontinue sales of the iPhone series, which is now three years old. Instead, it’s expected to drive down the price of the iPhone 12, which was released two years ago, and the iPhone 13, which was released one year ago, as the newly unveiled iPhone 14 takes center stage in the marketplace.
It is suggested in the report that, while it may appear that iPhone is withdrawing the 11 series from the market because it has become out of date, the decision may actually stem from the fact that the iPhone 11 is eating up potential sales for the recently unveiled (but dated-looking) iPhone SE 2022.
While the iPhone SE 2022 may be powered by the more powerful A15 Bionic, people are still choosing the iPhone 11 series because of its newer aesthetic, dual camera, and FaceID features that make even the three-year-old iPhone 8 look more modern than the not even two-month-old iPhone SE 2022 that continues to be based off a five-year-old design. In addition, it costs more than the iPhone 11 does.
The fact that the iPhone 11 was the world’s best-selling smartphone in 2020 comes as no surprise to anyone who knows Apple.
