When Apple launched the iPhone 12 mini, we almost all agreed: this will become a popular model. But nothing could be further from the truth, there are more and more noises that the smallest iPhone of the moment is anything but popular. Apple may want to stop production in the second quarter.
That’s what JP Morgan analysts claim to Apple Insider. According to the American bank, Apple would like to produce more models of the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max in the second quarter because the demand for these, more expensive and luxurious models, is sky-high.
iPhone 12 mini was only a small success
Although the iPhone 12 mini has everything and is not inferior to its bigger brother, the small iPhone seems to be sold little. The iPhone 12 Pro (Max), on the other hand, still has a form of scarcity. JP Morgan, therefore, claims to know that Apple will completely stop production of the iPhone 12 mini in the second quarter of 2021.
The smallest iPhone 12 is, according to the bank, a lot less popular than people had previously estimated. The stock is sufficient that it would no longer be necessary to continue production after the first quarter. Of course, the mini will still be for sale and there are enough copies to sell all year round. Apple has not yet confirmed the news.
This is not the first sound we hear about the popularity of the iPhone 12 mini, earlier rumors have appeared that the small iPhone cannot count on a large following. DigiTimes revealed that only 6 percent of the total iPhone 12 sales would consist of the mini.
iPhone 12 Pro production up
According to JP Morgan analysts, the iPhone 12 production would be adjusted down by more than 9 million models. The iPhone 12 Pro (Max) production will probably be adjusted upwards with 11 and 12 million models. The iPhone 11, on the other hand, is still popular and 8 million extra models would also be made of this model.
