The iPhone is the most iconic mobile phone with the highest social status. Apple is known for its advanced technology and secured system. Every product of Apple has the best quality one can ask for. The best thing about Apple products is their security system that keeps everything private, and no one can ever sneak into your devices.
Apple has a tradition of launching new iPhone models yearly and discontinuing the previous models. This year Apple launched iPhone 14 series and has simultaneously discontinued some of its previous models. Apart from that, some models will also be priced low now after the launch of new models. The new iPhone 14 series will cost from $899 to $1099.
According to the source, Apple typically stops producing iPhones three years into their lifecycle. For instance, the corporation ceased production of the iPhone 7 in 2019. It was introduced in 2016. Apple discontinued producing the iPhone 8 approximately three years after its release in September 2017—in April 2020—. The iPhone XR was released in 2018 and was no longer available in 2021. Given that Apple released the iPhone 11 in 2019, it appears likely that the company will stop selling it in 2022.
The iPhone 14 series will be introduced with all new, better features. There will be better cameras, satellite connectivity, and more. Preorders start on September 9th. The iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be officially available on September 16th, while the iPhone 14 Plus will be available on October 7th.

Which iPhone Models are going to be discontinued
On the one hand, people are excited to witness the new iPhone models, so on the other hand, some people are worried about the discontinuation of old models. People get attached and used to their mobile phones because these are personal things, and the news of the discontinuation of your phone model is a little sad.
Let’s have a look at the models that are going to be discontinued by Apple iPhone 11 – The tech giant terminated the Apple iPhone 11 series when the Apple iPhone 14 lineup was introduced. For those who don’t know, the Apple iPhone 11 was one of the most well-liked iPhone versions and the most popular smartphone worldwide in 2020.
Apple iPhone 12 Mini – Apple discontinued the “Mini” model along with the launch of the iPhone 14 series because, according to reports, it didn’t generate the buzz that the firm had hoped for. In case you weren’t aware, Apple’s iPhone 12 Mini was the first Mini model to be released by the brand.
Apple iPhone 13 Pro and Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max – As the ‘non-Pro’ versions in the Apple iPhone 14 series are equipped with the same A15 Bionic technology, the company may also stop selling the ‘Pro’ models in the Apple iPhone 13 lineup. Because the new iPhones don’t have a significant price difference from the current versions, the company also discontinued the Apple iPhone 13 Pro models.
As far now, these mentioned models are confirmed to be discontinued by the Apple Company. Apple must have been introducing unique features in its new iPhone 14 series that will cover up for the previous models discontinuation.
Are people using discontinued models in trouble?
There is always a doubt in customers’ minds about what will happen if a discontinued product is a part of their daily lives. We all get worried about it a little. As we hear about the launch of new iPhone models, we are also aware of the discontinuation of previous models. People who are using old models that are going to be discontinued are confused.
When certain products are discontinued, it becomes difficult to find things related to them. For example, in the case of cars, when a model of car is being discontinued, then people having that model can not find its spare parts. This is precisely what iPhone users are worried about. Everyone knows how expensive Apple products are, and people spend much of their hard work buying their dream company products.
After the discontinuation, will people be able to find accessories related to it? Will people be able to get it fixed if it breaks down? Will someone else buy that model from them after discontinuation? These are some of the questions that come to mind. People are worried about it because they have invested a lot of money.
Well, the iPhone is not that heartless. It takes care of its customers. Even if the previous models are discontinued, Apple will continue to provide the services and updates for the same. No one will face any difficulty in using the discontinued models. People who already own the models that will not be available anymore do not have to worry about it. Everything is being taken care of by Apple.
Apple will lower the prices of other models
People who can not afford the newly launched iPhone models because they are too expensive to have great news ahead. Everyone is aware now of new models launching and the discontinuation of some old models. Besides that, Apple will also lower the prices of other models. That makes the Apple iPhones a little affordable.
The most cost-effective iPhone in Apple’s lineup, the iPhone SE 3, was just released and retailed for $429. Customers receive the powerful A15 Bionic chipset found in the iPhone 13 series and 5G connectivity for the price. The iPhone SE 3 looks outdated in 2022 because of the large bezels surrounding the small 4.7-inch display and the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Users can spend an additional $70 to upgrade to the iPhone 11, which boasts a twin camera system, Face ID identification, and an edge-to-edge display. Since the iPhone SE 3’s debut, the iPhone 11 has sold “more than average.” Apple should stop selling the older model if the phone affects sales of the iPhone SE 3.
People who can afford and don’t have to sell their kidneys to buy the newest iPhone 14 models can wait until its release. At the same time, other people who do not want to spend a lot of money just on a mobile phone but want to experience the process can go for previous models that will be cheaper than before. Eventually, Apple fans have to say goodbye to their favorite iPhone models to make room for others, like every other year.
