Apple officially discontinues the iPhone 13 mini, marking end of the series

With the launch of the iPhone 15 series, Apple seems to have officially discontinued the iPhone mini lineup, with the iPhone 13 mini being the last device in the compact smartphone series.

The iPhone 13 mini (review) marks the end of the company’s ‘mini’ series, with Apple no longer selling any 5.4-inch device. This does not come as a surprise since interest in Apple’s mini lineup has plummeted exponentially in the last few years, with the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini being the least-sold devices by the company.

Launched in September 2021, the iPhone 13 mini is powered by the A15 Bionic chip and features a 5.4-inch Super Retina XDR OLED screen that comes with 800 nits brightness and is protected by Ceramic Shield glass.
