Launched in September 2019, the iPhone 11 is expected to be discontinued later this year. According to the latest report, Apple may discontinue the iPhone 11 after the launch of the iPhone 14 series this fall. The iPhone 14 series is expected to become official in September, but no date is available at this time. The report comes from iDropNews.

Since its launch, the iPhone 11 has been one of the best-selling Apple phones year after year. In fact, some reports suggest that the iPhone 11 could impact iPhone SE (2022) sales. That’s a good reason to discontinue the two-year-old iPhone.

Reports suggest that consumers prefer iPhone 11 over iPhone SE (2022) for its large screen and dual cameras. The iPhone SE (2022) or iPhone SE 3 features a 4.7-inch Retina IPS LCD display and a 12-megapixel single-camera sensor on the rear panel. The iPhone 11, on the other hand, features a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina IPS LCD display and a 12-megapixel dual rear camera system.

The shutdown means Apple will stop manufacturing the iPhone 11 and sell the phone while supplies last. In India, the iPhone 11 is assembled locally at Foxconn’s factory near Chennai.

Officially, the iPhone 11 is priced at a starting price of Rs 49,900 for the 64GB storage model. The top-end model of the phone with 128GB storage is priced at Rs 54,900. third parties like Amazon, Flipkart, Crome, iStore, among others, the iPhone model is available for a much lower price with bank offers.

Apple has yet to confirm the discontinuation of the iPhone 11, but the phone is expected to disappear soon after the launch of the iPhone 14 series. The next series is expected to include four models: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Starting this year, the Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to skip the mini for the Max. The company is likely to discontinue the mini model due to low demand. Apple is most likely expected to offer affordable phones in the SE and premium range in its number series.
