On September 14, Apple introduced the iPhone 13, which means that some earlier iPhone models would be phased out.
The iPhone 13 was unveiled alongside an improved iPad, a redesigned iPad mini, and an update to the Apple Watch. The latest iPhones boast an A15 Bionic processor, a longer battery life, and a better camera built for cinematic films, among other improvements.
The iPhone 13 will be available for preorder beginning September 17, and the device will be released on September 24. Despite the fact that Apple customers now have a variety of new phones to pick from, visitors to Apple’s online shop can no longer purchase some models from previous year.
Discontinued Apple iPhone models
Apple withdrew the iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and iPhone XR from its online store after the iPhone 13 unveiling event. The iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus were all retired last year, and these devices will join them.
Despite the fact that Apple no longer offers these older iPhones through its online shop, you may still be able to get them from certain phone carriers or third-party merchants.
