I believe that the fruit fans who have continued to pay attention to Mingmei Infinite should all know that the iPhone 12 launched by Apple last year has been enthusiastically sought after by consumers around the world, and sales are also rising. According to the latest statistics, Apple’s iPhone 12 has The shipment is about 40.4 million units, ranking among the forefront of 5G mobile phones. It seems that consumers still love the iPhone 12. However, among the four iPhones launched by Apple, there is one mobile phone that does not seem to be popular with consumers. That is The smallest iPhone 12 mini, and Apple seems to have discontinued the mini version of the iPhone to make way for other phones.
According to foreign media reports, the life cycle of the iPhone 12 mini has come to an end ahead of schedule, and Apple has discontinued the Model and entered the inventory clearance stage. If the news is true, then the iPhone 12 mini may be the shortest life-cycle Apple phone.
It is worth noting that in February this year, some analysts said that the market demand for the iPhone 12 mini is extremely low, which may cause Apple to stop production in the second quarter.
Looking back more than a decade ago, Steve Jobs thought that 3.5 inches was the best screen size for a mobile phone. However, today, the screen size of mobile phones is generally around 6.5 inches, and some models that focus on games and audio-visual experience even have screens of more than 7 inches. There is no doubt that a large screen brings a better experience, but not everyone needs a large screen. Many netizens call on mobile phone manufacturers to launch small-screen flagships that can complete all operations with one hand.
Perhaps hearing the voices of consumers, Apple launched a mini version in the iPhone 12 generation, and the 5.4-inch screen fits very well. However, this has also led to new problems. 5G networks are inherently power-hungry, but the battery capacity of the iPhone 12 mini is only 2227mAh, and the battery life performance is really poor. After all, the size of the fuselage is too small, and after adding many sensors, it can no longer fit a large battery.
According to reports, although production has been discontinued, the iPhone 12 mini is still available for purchase on Apple’s official website without any noticeable delay in shipping. The device is available in six colors, including purple, which will be available in late April.
The iPhone 12 mini ended up being the least popular model, showing the compact size of the phone isn’t popular in the US, which may be one reason why Apple doesn’t expect to release a “mini” version next year.
Apple is still expected to release the iPhone 13 mini later this year, but rumor has it that the 5.4-inch model will be gone in 2022.
In addition, Mingmei Infinite is also worth mentioning today that the news of the upcoming iPhone 13 series is becoming more and more clear. It is reported that this version will be released in the third week of September. However, the legendary 1TB version will not appear, and the iPhone 13 series should be equipped with the highest 512GB version. The price is basically the same as that of the previous game. If there is no accident, the minimum starting price of the National Bank version should still be 5499 yuan. In addition, the entire iPhone 13 series should be equipped with Apple’s latest A15 processor.
Mingmei believes that the price of the iPhone has risen to a certain level, and the price increase cannot continue; in fact, the starting price of the iPhone 12 series machines is the same as the iPhone 11 series, which shows that Apple is not willing to give up the “starting price” At this price, judging from the sales of flagship mobile phones on the market, high-end mobile phones with a price of 5,000 yuan are the most popular, so no one such as Apple will give up this price.
In terms of appearance, although major Android manufacturers have been working on off-screen cameras for a long time, the iPhone 13 will still be equipped with the ancestral Liu Haiping. However, it is reported that Apple will upgrade the bangs of the entire iPhone 13 series, which means that the screen ratio may be better than before.
In addition, the iPhone 13 Pro version will have a high refresh screen created by Samsung, which can support a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Dimensions are still 5.4, 6.1 and 6.7 inches.
In addition, Mingmei Infinite wants to mention by the way that in addition to the configuration, there is another good news for the iPhone 13 series. At the VivaTech 2021 summit a few days ago, Apple CEO Cook said that in the future new The production of the iPhone will no longer consume the earth’s resources and will rely on renewable resources to manufacture. And Apple has achieved carbon neutrality. Through resource recycling and energy conservation and emission reduction policies, 100% of Apple’s products will be made of renewable materials in the future, and will no longer consume limited resources on the earth. Carbon neutralization of the entire chain to the user end.
Compared with environmental protection, perhaps users are more concerned about the strength of the product itself. As for the real machine, we will have to wait until the press conference in September to find out.
Finally, what Mingmei wants to say is: Now it has been revealed that Apple will discontinue the production of the iPhone 12 mini. Although it has not been officially confirmed, it is obvious that this is not groundless, and this small screen has been proved to a large extent. Flagships are not recognized by the mainstream market, and small-screen flagship phones are still a niche demand, not a mainstream market demand. If there is no major breakthrough in electromagnetic technology and screen technology, the small-screen flagship mobile phone may end its historical mission. What size mobile phone do you think is the most suitable?
