Apple announced its new iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max today. As in recent years, it means discounts for older models and windings. Unlike last year, the discounted models are also the ones you want to buy if you want to avoid paying a premium for low-speed 5G.
Apple has lowered the starting price of its iPhone XR and iPhone 11 models by $ 100. The iPhone XR and iPhone 11 now start at $ 499 and $ 599, respectively. At the same time, Apple has discontinued the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. You will still be able to get these phones if you look hard enough, but not through any official channels.

These phones can of course be upgraded to iOS 14, which Apple released on September 16. There is an extra incentive to buy 2018 and 2019 models, but remember that they do not get new software updates forever.
Four years ago, Apple debuted the iPhone upgrade program, which allows you to get a new unlocked iPhone every year directly from the company instead of from your operator. If you can afford it, it is probably better to buy a new phone in advance – it is almost always better to deal with resale and buy yourself. However, if you are looking for convenience, or just do not like to pay your carrier, the iPhone Upgrade application is a decent option.
This is not the first time Apple has sold so many iPhones at once: iPhone SE ($ 399), iPhone XR ($ 499), iPhone 11 ($ 599), iPhone 12 mini ($ 729), iPhone 12 ($ 829), iPhone 12 Pro ($ 999) and iPhone 12 Pro Max ($ 1,099). In 2017, Apple increased its ante from five to eight iPhones. In 2018, the company reduced the number of iPhones to seven. In 2019, Apple reduced the number to six iPhones. When Apple introduced the latest iPhone SE in April, it began phasing out the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. Now we’re back to seven iPhones.
