Due to the decrease in demand, Apple may stop producing the iPhone 12 mini as the iPhone mini version has appeared alongside the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, which are said to perform relatively well in the market.

The iPhone Mini version has a lot of similarities with the iPhone 12, but the screen is smaller and the battery life is shorter.

William Yang, a supply chain analyst at investment bank JP Morgan, warned investors in a report that production of the iPhone 12 mini could end in the second quarter of 2021.

The closing does not mean that the iPhone mini version will be removed entirely from the market as there is still enough stock to hold the small model for a while.

Yang said in his note that production expectations for the iPhone 12 Pro Max could increase by 11 million units. Analysts said that there will be four new devices with smaller designs and longer battery life in the second half of 2021..

The analyst predicts that Apple's supply chain partners will produce 80 to 90 million units of the iPhone series in the second half of 2020 and that the iPhone 12 series will reach 76 million units in the second half of 2020.
