Apple launched the iPhone 14 series at September 7’s Far Out event. Following the event, they also discontinued some of their old ones. This Apple tradition has been followed every year to make room for their new phones. The new lineup consists of iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus (replacing the iPhone 13 mini), iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Along with the iPhone 14 series, the tech giant also launched 3 new Apple Watches and the 2nd Gen AirPods Pro.
Discontinuing an iPhone does not mean that you cannot buy that phone ever- it simply translates as Apple will stop manufacturing new units for the US market. You can still easily buy an iPhone 13 Pro Max from any third-party seller like- Amazon or Best Buy (until the stocks last) and you will also get at least 5 years of security and software updates for that iPhone. Well, the good news is the older phones will most likely be available at a discount. So, if you’re planning on buying an early Holiday gift this might be a good opportunity.
Following the tradition, Apple discontinued the last year’s Pro models as well as some older phones. The phones being discontinued after the launch of the iPhone 14 series are-
