Apple has made many significant announcements on Tuesday. Of course, they launched their iPhone 12, but there were more subsequent decisions made by Apple. This article will share every detail and specifications of the iPhone 12 and Apple’s subsequent decisions.
Let’s begin with the heartbreaking first! We all loved the magnificent colours of Apple 11, and it’s three cameras. Every influencer and TikToker flaunted these three cameras in their pictures and videos. So let’s talk about the highlights of what Apple plans for the iPhone 11.
- With the launch of the latest iPhone 12, Apple suspended two more iPhones, totalling four for 2020.

- Before this year, Apple abandoned the iPhone 8 after starting the second-generation iPhone SE.
- Although Apple revealed the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini, it’s yet trading last year’s iPhone 11 and the past year’s iPhone XR.
On Tuesday, Apple launched its new iPhone 12 lineup, which includes four new fifth-generation mobile devices starting at $699. But the launch of the new phone means that Apple has officially discontinued trading some series of earlier iPhones, making its total to four terminated models in 2020.

At the beginning of this year, Apple discontinued offering the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, two mobiles launched beside the iPhone X back in the year 2017. The launch of the iPhone SE 2, a low-cost iPhone starting at $399, made the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus unnecessary, as it includes a fast chip and better camera than the 3-year-old phones that Apple was selling for $450 up till April 2020.
While Apple has removed some older iPhone offerings, it has resumed selling various more classic devices, which means it now sells a phone at approximately every price position.
