iPhone 11 to be discontinued because of iPhone 14 launch?
Apple may ditch the iPhone 11. Here’s why.
The iPhone 11 might be counting its last days. This iPhone has completed three years since launch- it made its debut back in 2019. And now, Apple is preparing to bring the new iPhone 14 series on September 7. That means, you will have a more diverse choice of options. However, its direct impact will be seen on some previous iPhone models, especially the iPhone 11, which may likely be killed off by Apple. In the past, we have seen the removal of iPhone 8 and iPhone XR. The same norm is expected to be applied to the iPhone 11 now. Several experts and reports have hinted towards the end of the era of the iPhone 11. Should you worry? First, know the reasons behind the expected discontinuation of the iPhone 11.
Apple may discontinue iPhone 11 because...
- Apple doesn't keep any iPhone for more than three years! A report by Tom's Guide suggests, "Apple also rarely keeps phones longer than three years after their release date. The iPhone 11, unveiled in September 2019, is rapidly approaching its Sell-By date, so it's a pretty safe bet that it's getting cycled out of the lineup this fall."
- iPhone 11 doesn't support 5G. Yes, that's a big deal now in the era of 5G technology, when almost every other brand is coming up with their 5G smartphones.
- iPhone 11 is a bit outdated in front of the latest tech that sits on the iPhone 12 or iPhone 13. LCD display and older camera sensors may not appeal to many iPhone fans.
Will iPhone 11 be available to buy after discontinuation?
The discontinuation of an iPhone simply means that Apple will no more make it available for you to buy on its website. However, even if Apple discontinues the iPhone 11, you will still be able to find it on several online retailers and e-commerce websites till the stock exists, Tom's Guide report suggested. Another good news is that Apple hasn't announced anything in regards to the discontinuation of previous iPhone models. So, there is still hope!
