Apple's rumoured iPhone 17 redesign sounds a little confusing

Alas, poor iPhone mini. The diminutive device was unceremoniously axed from the Apple line up last year, leaving small phone fans with nowhere to turn (first world problems, etc). Indeed, Apple keeps going bigger, replacing the mini with the giant iPhone Plus – but that one hasn't sold great either

Rumours have begun circulating that the company is planning to release a new 'Slim' edition of the iPhone 17 in 2025, reigniting hopes that a smaller form factor could be making a return. But based on the limited details we have so far, it sounds like this one could sit somewhere between the mini and the Plus. (Wondering what to expect from this year's release?
