Apple Discontinues 5.4-Inch iPhone 13 Mini, Still Sells iPhone 13 and iPhone 14
With the launch of the new iPhone 15 models, Apple has discontinued the iPhone 13 mini, the last remaining flagship iPhone under six inches. Apple only made two 5.4-inch iPhone minis, the iPhone 12 mini and the iPhone 13 mini.
The iPhone 12 mini was discontinued with the launch of the iPhone 14, leaving the iPhone 13 mini as the only smaller flagship option. The iPhone SE is still available to those who want something smaller than 6.1 inches, but it does not have modern features like Face ID.
Apple is continuing to sell the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 14 as lower-cost options that are offered as an alternative to the iPhone 15. The iPhone 12 has also been discontinued and replaced with the iPhone 13, which has dropped in price. Apple's full device lineup is as follows:
- iPhone SE - $429

- iPhone 14 - $699
- iPhone 15 - $799
- iPhone 15 Plus - $899
- iPhone 15 Pro - $999
- iPhone 15 Pro Max - $1199
