On 12 September, Tuesday, Apple inaugurated its much-awaited and everyone’s favourite iPhone 15 series. The unveiling of new smartphones occurred in the ‘Wonderlust’ event organized by Apple. It has been a trend witnessed by Apple that whenever it introduces new products, it phases out its older products. The Cupertino-based tech giant has followed its trend this year too.
In India, Apple Inc. discontinued the manufacture and sale of older iPhone models immediately after the debut of the new iPhone 15 Series. Apple is making the way for its latest iPhone 15 Pro Max, iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Plus, and iPhone 15 series.

My thesis regarding #iPhoneMini and #iPhoneSE: the Mini will be discontinued and stays in the line-up. In a certain time, the SE will be the Mini without Face ID, Touch ID in the Power Button. #Apple #iPhone
