San Francisco – Apple may consider halting production of iPhone 12 mini in the second quarter of this year, as reported by JP Morgan Chase. JP Morgan Chase supply chain analyst William Yang thinks “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.” But he has raised the iPhone 12 Pro Max sales forecast by 11 million units, iPhone 12 Pro by 2 million units and iPhone 11 by 8 million units. Yang says Apple aims to produce 80 million to 90 million iPhone 13 series, more than the 76 million scheduled for the iPhone 12 series in the second half of 2020. He says there may not be new iPhone SE models in 2021.
iPhone 12 mini is the smallest, thinnest, and lightest 5G smartphone in the world, re-architected to pack all the technology of iPhone 12 into a delightfully compact size, while still delivering an impressively large and immersive edge-to-edge display. With a 5.4-inch screen, compared with the standard model’s 6.1-inch display, it sports the same dual-camera setup on the back as the 12 model and looks absolutely stunning in hands. Apple delivered a phenomenal performance in the December quarter, returning to the top position with 90.1 million devices shipped, driven by the success of the iPhone 12 series, according to data from the IDC’s ‘Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker’.
