The “Apple” company is preparing to abandon the production of iPhones of the XR series in favor of a more modern budget analogue of SE 2020. The release of this model will stop immediately after the presentation of the “line” of iPhone 12. The user @iAppleTimes, positioning himself as an acquaintance, shared the relevant information on his Twitter with the “inner kitchen” of an expert Apple.

According to the information he has, the debut show of “twelve” will take place in October. The reason for the shift in the premiere is the situation with COVID-19. The refusal of “Yabloko” to continue the release of the successful XR is due to the reluctance to further reduce the price of the device in order to increase its competitiveness.
Basic production of the iPhone 11 will continue, according to @iAppleTimes. The price for this device after the premiere of the devices of the twelfth model will be 549 USD (- $ 150 relative to the current price).
More serious smartphones of the eleventh series, according to the source, will be discontinued. We are talking about the “advanced” and more expensive models 11 Pro Max and 11 Pro. In 2019, Yabloko took a similar approach (immediately after the presentation of the iPhone 11, the XS and XS Max smartphones were discontinued).
