There had been rumours that Apple was unhappy with the dwindling sales numbers of the iPhone 12 Mini. The device didn’t sell as Apple expected it to, despite a vocal demand from users asking for a flagship device but smaller in size.

It is now being reported that the Cupertino based smartphone maker has pulled a plug on the 12 Mini. The TrendForce report says that the phone “reached End-of-Life ahead of time in 2Q21”. Confirming the poor sales numbers, it mentions that the pint-sized flagship from Apple “suffered disappointing sales performances compared to other models in the iPhone 12 family.”
