APPLE has already phased out four popular iPhone models before even releasing its latest batch.
Anyone who thinks they can get older phones a little cheaper will be disappointed if they try to buy them through the tech giant’s official website.
That’s because every reference to the iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPhone 12 Mini, and iPhone 11 has been deleted.
It’s common for Apple to scrap older models as new ones come out.
However, you can still get the doomed mobile phones on other shopping sites such as: Amazon.
But once the supply is empty, it’s the end for all four.
Of course, that doesn’t mean they stop working, so anyone who owns one needn’t worry.
The iPhone 11 is the oldest of the range and was released in 2019.
Since the iPhone 12 Mini was scrapped, that means the iPhone 13 Mini will be the only one left from the Mini series.
Apple has decided not to continue the line in its 14th generation of iPhone.

Meanwhile, the Apple iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max aren’t that different from the new iPhone 14 Plus.
So it makes sense for Apple to stop selling these devices, otherwise they could hurt sales of their new devices.
The company says its new phones are the most powerful yet, with upgraded cameras and more powerful batteries.
They’re the first iPhones in years to ditch the notch at the top of the display and feature a pill-shaped cutout instead.
With four new models on offer, the iPhone 14 is now the entry-level option.
The iPhone 14 Plus is pretty much the same but with a larger display, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max has all the bells and whistles.
iPhone 14 specs and features
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro come with 6.1-inch displays, but the Plus and Pro Max models expand to 6.7-inches.
There are five colors to choose from including Midnight, Starlight, Blue, Purple and Red.
Apple has kept last year’s A15 chip to power the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, while upgrading the Pro range to a more powerful new A16 chip.
Apple has also upgraded its cameras, claiming that the iPhone 14 can perform better in low-light environments and offer 49 percent better low-light image capture.
There’s a larger sensor and faster focus with an f/1.5 aperture.
Apple says it’s now possible to take night mode photos much faster.
And the selfie camera has also been improved with a faster aperture, offering a 39 percent boost for low-light selfies.
There are also some new safety features, like car crash detection, which can automatically alert emergency services if you’re in danger.
Apple has also added a new Emergency feature to get help even if you’re unplugged in a remote location.
With the new emergency SOS you can connect to a satellite and share your location with emergency services.
You will be notified when satellite reception is available and also when emergency responders have received the ping.
Apple also emphasized that its products are durable and has worked to make this iPhone recyclable and environmentally friendly.
