The rumor: Apple is planning to revamp the sizing for the 2022 iPhones, according to Ming-Chi Kuo (76.6% accurate).
- According to Kuo’s latest investor note, Apple is planning to eliminate the mini iPhone and do essentially the following lineup:
- 6.1-inch iPhone
- 6.7-inch iPhone Max
- 6.1-inch iPhone Pro
- 6.7-inch iPhone Pro Max
- The lower-end 6.7-inch iPhone is predicted to start at under $900
- Under-display Touch ID has also been rumored again, but is also supposed to happen on the new iPhones coming later this year
Our take: This is huge news, as the market demand for sub-$900 6.7-inch iPhone would be wild. The plus-to-max sized iPhones have always been Apple’s most expensive, but this shift to a lower-end big iPhone is something that a lot of people have been asking for. Good riddance to the mini iPhone in 2022.
