The iPhone 12 mini is not selling as many anticipated. Considering its price tag, the display and how iPhone enthusiasts constantly asked for a smaller, but premium phone, one would have thought the iPhone 12 mini would enjoy a lot of sales.

The whole iPhone 12 range has been relatively profitable, and in the United States, they accounted for 76% of all iPhone sales in October and November. That’s up from 2019, where the iPhone 11 span accounted for just 69% of iPhone sales.
CIRP notes that the iPhone SE may have been somewhat accountable for the poor sales of the iPhone 12 mini.
The $399 SE is considerably inexpensive than the $699 iPhone 12 mini, and arrives in a furthermore tiny shape component, though the 12 mini is narrowly tinier with much bigger screen space into its tiny frame.
According to CIRP, another reason the iPhone 12 mini is not selling is Apple’s leaned release plan — launching the iPhone 12 mini and 12 Pro Max a month after the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro — make it harder to correlate early sales.
