Apple Cuts Orders For iPhone 12 Mini By 20%
Apple has cut orders for iPhones by 20 percent, according to Nikkei Asia, due to lower-than-expected demand for its small iPhone 12 mini.
However Apple’s latest iPhones are still in high demand.
The company plans to build 230 million iPhones in 2021, up 11.6 percent from 2020, but consumers are preferring the iPhone 11 to the iPhone 12 mini.
Apple analysts believe this is because the older iPhone 11 has a bigger screen more akin to the larger iPhone 12 and premium iPhone 12 Pro models.
Some reviewers of the Apple 12 mini have been overawed by the model.
The sentiment seems to come from those people with smaller hands – but why not pay US$100 more and get an iPhone 12 with better battery life.
