Five new iPhones 15 models instead of four! iPhone 14 Plus flops – why not bring back your iPhone mini!

Written by admin

Five new iPhones instead of four! The iPhone 14 Plus flops (also) – why can’t we also have an iPhone mini? Here’s why Apple should bring back the mini iPhone…

Of course, the fact that the iPhone 13 mini is my favorite iPhone means nothing at all Apple, so I thought I’d ask our readers to cast a vote and tell me and Cupertino whether bringing back the smallest iPhone since the iPhone 5 is a good idea or not…

But before you scroll to the bottom of the page and vote, here are some reasons why Apple might consider reviving the iPhone mini…

Five new iPhones – let the people choose!

The first and latest argument I have is that the iPhone, which replaced the iPhone mini – the iPhone 14 Plus doesn’t seem to impress… That’s a rather bizarre outcome, because the only reason to replace the mini iPhone with a larger model seems to have been the relatively poor sales figures of the iPhone mini. Honestly, like Apple, we the “tech people” also expected the iPhone 14 Plus to be a huge success, thanks to the fact that it is the first iPhone with a large 6.7-inch screen that costs less than $ 1,100 , but… Apple was wrong. And so were we!

If Apple is thinking about keeping the iPhone Plus, and this phone continues to sell poorly, I don’t see why there isn’t room for a fifth iPhone within the iPhone 15 lineup!

An iPhone 15 lineup that looks like this would make a lot of people happy…

  • iPhone 15mini (5.4-inch screen, $699)
  • iPhone 15 (6.1-inch screen, $799)
  • iPhone 15+ (6.7-inch screen, $899)
  • iPhone 15 Pro (6.1-inch screen, $999)
  • iPhone 15 Ultra (6.7-inch screen, $1,199 – expected price before the rumors iPhone 15 Ultra)

Sure, that could technically mean “two iPhones that don’t sell as many units as Apple would like,” but hey…why not give people a choice? Unless a Flip iPhone is on the way? Wink, wink. Probably not.

iPhone mini disappears; iPhone SE gets bigger; where’s the little iPhone?

The following argument is not directly related to the iPhone mini. In fact, it has to do with another small iPhone, and that is the iPhone SE4!

Apple’s next Special Edition iPhone is rumored to be arriving soon with a 6.1-inch display and thicker bezels, practically mimicking the design of the 2018 iPhone XR. Of course, such a result would mean that the truly compact iPhone would disappear forever from Apple’s future lineup, leaving those with smaller hands and pockets stuck.

Without the tiny iPhone SE and the really compact mini iPhone, the smallest iPhone would be the iPhone 15, which is expected to retain its 6.1-inch screen size.

iPhones around the world are getting super expensive…

Perhaps it goes without saying, but an iPhone 15 mini would be the cheapest flagship iPhone for those who want to join the Apple party!

Before the release of the iPhone 14 series, it was precisely the $699 iPhone 13 mini that gave people a taste of Apple’s flagship devices at the lowest possible price! However, with the arrival of the $900 iPhone 14 Plus, the most affordable and smallest flagship iPhone people can buy became the iPhone 14, which starts at $800.

What really doesn’t help is the fact that in 2022 iPhone prices outside the US will skyrocket. For example, the cheapest iPhone you can buy in Germany right now is the vanilla iPhone 14, starting at a staggering €1,000!

Examples include the latest MacBook Pro, which brings back obsolete ports that were disabled years ago, the new old Scissor Switch keyboard on newer MacBooks, and the Apple Pencil 2, which replaced the original (which had to be plugged into your iPad’s charging port to … charge).

Now the iPhone 14 Plus doesn’t seem to be selling much better than the iPhone 13 mini, so I suppose there’s a little light at the end of the tunnel! No?
