Apple quietly SCRAPS three beloved iPhone models after last night’s iPhone 13 event

APPLE has scrapped three different iPhone models after last night’s big tech event.

The iPhone 13 is now official – but several models have since been “sunsetted”.

Unsurprisingly, last year’s iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max met the chopping block.

They’re now totally gone from the Apple website – unless you’re willing to buy a refurbished model.

However, the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 12 are both still available to buy, albeit with discounts.

Apple has shaved £120/$100 off the price of these two models.

That’s not all: Apple has also killed off an older smartphone.

The iPhone XR – launched in 2018 as a “cheaper” model – is no longer available.

There are still plenty of lower-end products to buy, including the iPhone SE, the iPhone 11, and the iPhone 12 or 12 Mini.

And the iPhone 13 now starts at £679 / $699, which isn’t bad for a high-end smartphone these days.

It will still be possible to buy the three scrapped smartphones in their refurbished forms.

And you’ll obviously be able to find them on a secondhand basis, when bought through services like eBay or Gumtree.

The new iPhone 13 models are available to pre-order from this Friday.

And they’ll be widely available on Friday, September 24.
