iPhone 11, which was released in 2019, may be phased out soon. According to recent speculations, Apple may halt manufacture of the iPhone 11 after the release of the iPhone 14, which is expected in September this year. However, there has been no confirmation of the discontinuation date as of yet. In India, the iPhone 11 will be available till supplies run out, or as reconditioned versions. Officially, the iPhone 11 starts at Rs 49,900 in India, although that price may drop in the coming days.
Apple has been contemplating the discontinuation internally, according to a report by idropnews. This may disappoint some, as the iPhone 11 is one of the most popular phones, and it is also expected to be the best-selling smartphone in 2020. The iPhone 11 devices are constructed and manufactured in India at Foxconn’s factory near Chennai.
iPhone 11 discontinuation: Possible reasons
Since its release in 2019, Apple’s iPhone 11 has been one of the company’s best-selling devices. However, this will obstruct the selling of the iPhone SE (2022), which will be released in 2022. Because the iPhone 11 has a larger display and Face ID recognition, it is outselling the iPhone SE (2022), which is very identical to the iPhone SE (2020). In addition, the iPhone 11 has a second camera on the back.
Users will be able to purchase an iPhone 11 in India until stocks last, or if they choose a refurbished device. It has a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina IPS LCD and a 12-megapixel dual rear camera system. While the 64GB storage variant can be purchased from a retailer for Rs 49,900, e-commerce websites such as Amazon or Flipkart can be searched for a lesser price, especially when combined with bank discounts.
iPhone 14 launch in September
While Apple has not confirmed the iPhone 11’s demise, the smartphone is believed to be phased out with the release of the iPhone 14 series. Four smartphones are likely to be released: the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
A 6.1-inch display is possible for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone Pro Max, on the other hand, have a 6.7-inch display. Qualcomm’s A16 Bionic chipset will purportedly power the new handsets, which will offer 5G connectivity.
