iPhone 13 mini could be discontinued tomorrow
Apple could pull the plug on the iPhone 13 mini tomorrow, with stock checks of Apple.com showing low availability for the device ahead of the iPhone maker’s “Wonderlust” special event on Tuesday, where it is expected to unveil the next-generation iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro.
Spotted by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the low availability of the iPhone 13 mini, Apple’s last remaining “mini” iPhone, suggests that the device will be discontinued and removed from the lineup tomorrow when Apple introduces its new iPhone series, which would put an end to the device that launched in 2021.
Following the launch of the device two years ago, it was widely reported that demand for the 5.4-inch iPhone was extremely low, accounting for just 3% of overall iPhone 13 sales in the U.S. shortly after its launch.
It isn’t uncommon for Apple to discontinue older devices at the time of launching new. The Cupertino company will likely continue selling the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus tomorrow after the launch of its successors, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus, although at least according to stock checks, it looks like the iPhone 13 mini is on its final hours before heading to the Apple archive.
