Everyone was excited about the arrival of the iPhone 12 mini but it looks like this model hasn’t been the greatest success as it only accounted for 5% of the sales. New estimates from Counterpoint Research indicate that the iPhone 12 mini has only accounted for 5% of sales of the entire iPhone 12 range during the first two weeks of January in the United States.
iPhone 12 mini has only accounted for 5% of the sales
These are not conclusive figures, but neither should we ignore that they probably indicate a trend that may be mirrored in other markets around the world. Experts say that investors were already expecting this, and it is also good news financially as it means better sales of the more expensive handsets.
Will there be an iPhone 13 mini?
Not even a month ago we saw clues about Apple reducing the production of the iPhone 12 mini, which already hinted that few people were opting for this model. Meanwhile, the Pro Max model multiplied the initial sales by eight.
The question that comes to mind is, will there be an iPhone 13 mini? There are rumors that claim that we will see no changes in the range, but if all the studies indicate such a low percentage, I would not be surprised to see Apple decide not to invest resources in continuing to manufacture a small smartphone. As always, we will have to keep an eye on the rumors.
