Juli Clover, MacRumors:
With the launch of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro, Apple has discontinued some older iPhones that were available as low-cost options. Apple is no longer selling the iPhone 11, and the iPhone 12 mini has also been discontinued. The iPhone 13 mini remains in the lineup for those who want a smaller iPhone.
For people who do not demand the latest and greatest, this may be the best news from today’s announcements. The iPhone 12 is just $600, and so is the iPhone 13 Mini. The Mini is an even better deal than you might think because it includes 128 GB of storage at that price compared to the iPhone 12’s 64 GB.
If you are hoping for the next iPhone SE to be a Mini-sized iPhone, the relatively modest $120 price difference between a 128 GB third-generation iPhone SE and equivalent-capacity iPhone 13 Mini makes that idea more credible. But I still think it is more likely the next iPhone SE is, more-or-less, an iPhone 11.
