Back in 2020, Apple introduced its first “mini” iPhone with the iPhone 12 lineup. Although the sales numbers for that model were never impressive, the company gave its smaller phone another chance with iPhone 13 mini in 2021. Now it seems that the iPhone mini is going away for good. And for those of you who own one of these, are you planning to upgrade your phone any time soon? 

Since the introduction of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in 2014, iPhones have been getting bigger than ever. After all, every other smartphone already had a big screen at the time, and iPhone was one of the few to continue with a 4-inch screen.

While large screens seemed to be the way to go, some users have always complained about it. They wanted a smaller phone that still had all the great features of a new one. That’s when Apple came up with the first iPhone SE in 2015, which had the exact same form-factor as an iPhone 5s, but with the internal hardware of the iPhone 6s. It was a small phone with the latest processor and the best camera capable of shooting 4K video.

The size of the iPhone SE was indeed one of the reasons why people bought it, but it was also much cheaper than its bigger brothers. Eventually, iPhone SE was discontinued until Apple decided to bring the SE back in 2020 – but this time, with the same form-factor as an iPhone 8. The 4.7-inch LCD screen is not as compact as that of an iPhone 5, but is still considerably smaller than any other modern iPhone.

But the second generation iPhone SE was far from being a smaller iPhone 11. It had the same chip, but not the same cameras or the same display quality. Later that year, Apple decided to show some love to more demanding users who preferred smaller phones. The iPhone 12 mini was exactly an iPhone 12, but smaller.
