Back in 2019, the iPhone 11 was a big deal for Apple fans. After the weirdly compromised iPhone XR, the iPhone 11 introduced modern niceties like an ultra wide camera, an edge-to-edge display, the Face ID system, and a main camera with better low light performance. In the years following its launch, the iPhone 11 has only become cheaper and is right now the second most affordable iPhone. It is also the only 4G iPhone to exist today. Is this why Apple could be considering killing the iPhone 11 in a few months?

Based on a report from idropnews, it is said that Apple is considering killing the iPhone 11 internally. No concrete reasons are given behind this decision but it seems the iPhone 11's lifecycle is over. Moreover, the report says this old iPhone has been giving its newbie iPhone SE more competition than it ever wanted. In fact, the iPhone 11 has sold more than average ever since the new iPhone SE was announced.

iPhone 11 could be going out soon

Apple is yet to make this decision official but based on the past, the iPhone 11 has been around for a long time now. Apple usually keeps any main generation iPhone around for almost three years before pulling the plug. And, with the iPhone 14 around the corner, it only makes sense for Apple to discontinue to the iPhone 13 and bring down the iPhone 12 to its place.

Over the course of its life, the iPhone 11 has seen mega price drops and hikes as well. Currently, it carries a price tag just shy of Rs. 50,000 in India and is one of the few iPhone models to be manufactured locally as well. The iPhone 11 introduced popular features such as Deep Fusion in the main camera to enhance image detailing. Then there was the UWB chip that makes this iPhone compatible with the AirTag tracker.

While the iPhone is said to be axed, the iPhone 12 will stay on for another year. And as it goes without saying, the iPhone 13 will be around along with the iPhone 13 Mini, the latter not being considered popular in several markets. The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max may not see light after September since Apple kills the Pro models within a year.
