Will the iPhone 12 drop in price with the departure of the 13? — 2022

With the iPhone 13 about to be announced, there are those who are really looking at the iPhone 12 with interest. They are phones that were already known a year ago and with enough reviews to know what are good phones despite the fact that they will soon cease to be what they are. last of the last. And this is where The question arises as to whether Apple will vary its prices . We analyze everything in this post based on the already knowniPhone pricing policy.

In Apple they could disappear, but not in other stores

The usual thing in Apple is that with the release of new iPhones, some of those from previous generations are withdrawn, although not all. It all depends on the commercial strategy that they mark, which, although it can be predictable, always ends up being uncertain. The last example is found in 2020, when after the release of the iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max were withdrawn, although they kept the iPhone XR, SE and iPhone XR in the catalog. eleven.

As we said, we cannot know which phones they will withdraw, but based on the already filtered characteristics of the new iPhone 13, it would be perfectly feasible for the four iPhone 12s to disappear from the catalog along with the iPhone XR, leaving only the iPhone 11 and iPhone SE as smartphones. Starting before you get to the new ones. Otherwise and if they kept any of the current '12', we could get to see discounts of around 100 euros .

That mentioned reduction can become greater, although not much more, except for a capital surprise and that Apple makes a very considerable reduction. In any case, it does not seem usual knowing its policy, in which iPhone prices only drop once a year and it has never been exorbitant. The reason for this is that if they are lowered in excess it could harm the new phones, which could be seen as excessively expensive for the foreseeable differences that there will be (another reason why they could directly withdraw them).

In the event that some or all of the smartphones in the iPhone 12 line are finally withdrawn, it is expected that it will continue to be sold in other stores while stocks last . And in those cases, we can find discounts of more than 100 euros, so they would always be interesting purchase options.

And the iPhone 13? How much could they cost?

In recent weeks we have had somewhat contradictory rumors regarding this. While information close to the supply chain suggests that Apple must face an increase in costs due to the shortage of drivers, which could cause the final product to rise in price, others bet that despite everything it will remain Same.

We remember that now the iPhone 12 have the following starting prices, which would be the standards forcompare with iPhone 13:

  • iPhone 12 mini: 809 euros
  • iPhone 12: 909 euros
  • iPhone 12 Pro: €1,159
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max: €1,259

The only certainty is that nothing is certain. The rumors in the end are always confusing when it comes to talking about prices, since it is usually one of Apple's best kept secrets despite the fact that many other features have been leaked. Therefore, the only thing we can do is wait for Tuesday, the date of presentation of the four new smartphones and in which this information will finally be confirmed.
