Apple officially unveiled the iPhone 14 series yesterday at its “Far Out Event.” The new iPhones came with AirPods Pro 2nd Gen, an Apple Watch Series 8, and an Apple Watch Ultra. Unsurprisingly, the American tech behemoth also announced the retirement of certain older iPhone models.
The incoming Pro models have replaced the outgoing Pro models in Apple’s iPhone lineup, as they do every year. In other words, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max will be officially discontinued in 2021.
The iPhone 13 Pro Series brings some big upgrades. It added features such as a 120Hz LTPO display, an improved triple camera system, significantly improved battery life, and more.
Furthermore, the iPhone 11 will be discontinued in 2019. It was the first iPhone to include a dual-camera setup, 4GB of RAM, 18W wired charging support, and other features.
Finally, Apple will discontinue the iPhone 12 Mini in 2020. At the time of its release, it was the first Mini iPhone, one of the first 5G iPhones, and the most affordable iPhone with an OLED display.
As a matter of fact, the current Apple iPhone family looks like this.
- iPhone SE 3rd Gen (2022)
- iPhone 12
- iPhone 13 Mini
- iPhone 13
- iPhone 14
- iPhone 14 Plus
- iPhone 14 Pro
- iPhone 14 Pro Max
Anyway, while Apple has officially stopped selling the above older iPhone models, they will still be available for purchase from retailers worldwide while supplies last.
Finally, with the discontinuation of the iPhone 11, Apple is now only selling 5G-enabled smartphones.
