Jakarta (ANTARA) – Apple Inc. is rumored to be stopping production of the iPhone 12 Mini in the coming months of this year.
Phone Arena, citing Chinese-language site MyDrivers on Sunday, reported that this decision had to be taken due to the worst sales of the iPhone 12 Mini among the four models launched last year.
One reason is that the iPhone 12 Mini’s battery is very small compared to other models, only having a capacity of 2,227mAh.
In terms of global sales, this cheapest cellphone only contributes 6 percent of the total four iPhones launched in 2020.
Apple is forecast to stop producing the iPhone 12 Mini in the second quarter of this year.
The iPhone 12 Mini starts at 699 US dollars, or the cheapest version in Indonesia, selling for IDR 12,999,000.
Cellphone industry analysts predict that after discontinuing the iPhone 12 Mini, Apple will increase production of the most expensive model launched last year, the iPhone 12 Pro Max to 11 units.
Apple is expected to keep launching four new iPhones this year, including one with a small screen.
