In Apple they could disappear, but not in other stores
The usual thing in Apple is that with the launch of new iPhones, some of the previous generations are withdrawn, although not all. It all depends on the commercial strategy that they mark that, although it can be predictable, it always ends up being uncertain. The last example is found in 2020, when after the release of the iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max were withdrawn, although they kept the iPhone XR, SE and eleven.
As we said, we cannot know which phones they will withdraw, but taking into account the already filtered characteristics of the new iPhone 13, it would be perfectly feasible that the four iPhone 12 would disappear from the catalog along with the iPhone XR, leaving only the iPhone 11 and iPhone SE as smartphones. starting before reaching the new ones. Otherwise and if they kept any of the current ’12’, we could get to see discounts of around 100 euros.
That aforementioned reduction may be greater, although not much more, except for a capital surprise and that Apple makes a very considerable reduction. In any case, it does not seem usual knowing its policy, in which iPhone prices only drop once a year and it has never been exorbitant. The reason for this is that if they are lowered too much it could hurt the new phones, which could be seen too expensive for the foreseeable differences that there will be (another reason why they could directly retire them).
In the event that some or all of the smartphones of the iPhone 12 line are finally withdrawn, it is expected that it will continue to be sold in other stores while supplies last. And in those cases if we can find discounts of more than 100 euros, so they would always be interesting purchase options.
And the iPhone 13? How much could they cost?
In recent weeks we have had somewhat contradictory rumors regarding this. While the information close to the supply chain indicates that Apple must face an increase in costs due to the shortage of drivers, which could cause the final product to rise in price, others are betting that it will remain in spite of everything. equal.
We remember that now the iPhone 12 have the following starting prices, which would be the standards to compare with the ’13’:
- iPhone 12 mini: 809 euros
- iPhone 12: 909 euros
- iPhone 12 Pro: 1,159 euros
- iPhone 12 Pro Max: 1,259 euros
The only certain thing is that there is nothing certain. The rumors at the end are always confusing when it comes to talking about prices, since it is usually one of Apple’s best kept secrets despite many other features having been leaked. Therefore, the only thing we can do is wait for Tuesday, the date of presentation of the four new smartphones and in which this information will finally be confirmed.
