At Apple’s September 2022 iPhone event, there was a distinct lack of iPhone mini, leading many to speculate (us included) that the small form factor iPhone is well and truly dead. So why did Apple skip the mini this year, and are we forever stuck with bigger iPhones?
In September 2021, Apple announced the iPhone 13 mini alongside the standard iPhone 13, 13 Pro, and 13 Pro Max. This followed the iPhone 12 mini which saw a release in the previous year. For a while, it seemed like iPhone fans who preferred pocket space over battery life would be catered for by the tech giant.
