The iPhone 12 mini did not meet the expected success. Therefore, Apple is said to have cut production of the smartphone to focus on the best-selling model, namely the more expensive iPhone 12 Pro, but which has a larger screen.
L’iPhone 12 mini was serving as a sort of experiment when it was announced alongside the other three models in the 2020 lineup, the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Apple’s smallest 5G smartphone has a 5.4 inch slab, but it doesn’t sacrifice performance that is on par with the iPhone 12.
When it was released a few months ago, the iPhone 12 mini had everything it needed to succeed thanks to its small size and affordable price. However, this apparently was not enough. Analysts recently confirmed that sales of the iPhone 12 mini are disappointing compared to the iPhone 12, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max. Indeed, the compact smartphone only represented 6% of total sales from the range.
Apple Focuses on iPhone 12 Pro Instead of iPhone 12 mini
Faced with the relatively disappointing sales of the iPhone 12 mini, Apple would have taken the necessary measures. It would have effectively reduced the production of the smartphone even smaller than the iPhone SE 2020. According to a new report, the Cupertino company has reduced the production of 2 million units. Instead, the production of l’iPhone 12 Pro is increased by 2 million units. And yes, this model ultimately seems to be the user’s favorite so far.
But then, does Apple plan to try this format again with the iPhone 13 this year? It is not yet certain. Especially since the iPhone 12 mini does not have only strengths. One of its major flaws is its autonomy which leaves much to be desired. Moreover, several users had noticed a bug in the touch screen when they used a screen protector or a shell. This bug was finally fixed a few days later with the version of iOS 14.2.1.
Finally, the iPhone 12 Pro, whose production will soon be increased, certainly attracts more users thanks to its perfect format and son excellent design even if its value for money is not the best of the range.
