American tech giant Apple is seemingly considering discontinuing the manufacture of its iPhone 12 mini.
According to the reports, Apple is reportedly planning on discontinuing its most reasonable handset within the iPhone 12 series in Q2 2021.
The report is based on a recent forecast note by JP Morgan Chase, with its analyst William Yang stating that the adjusted forecast is for both the iPhone 12 series and the new generation iPhone series launch that is expected to arrive in the second half of this year.
On the other hand, the company minimizes iPhone 12 mini production from 11 million units to 9 million units.
The analyst added that “given that demand for the iPhone 12 mini seems to be weak, the supply chain may stop production of the phone in the second quarter of 2021.” He further stated that the sales projection for the iPhone 12 Pro Max has risen by 11 million units, 2 million units for the iPhone 12 Pro, and by 8 million for the iPhone 11.
