And so it came to pass. The rumours were true. The iPhone mini is no more. Well, it's not completely gone, Apple hasn't actually discontinued the iPhone 13 mini, but it hasn't updated it either. I'm not angry, Apple. I'm just disappointed.

Alas, the writing was on the wall for the iPhone mini for a while. Sales figures for the iPhone 12 mini were allegedly pitiful, and the 13 mini fared even worse. With no discernable appetite for the diminutive device, Apple decided there would be no iPhone 14 mini. Fans of small phones might want to check out our iPhone mini deals roundup.
