The premiere of new iPhones always means that earlier models go into non-existence. This is also the case, although for one of the models I would like it not to happen.
Apple rarely mentions it during his conferences, but the facts are that the balance in the ecosystem of smartphones of this company must always be preserved. Three new smartphones have just been announced, which means that three of them must simply fly out of the Apple offer and this is what is happening.
iPhone 6s at the outlet
Let's start with equipment that you could expect to see sales complete. Speech about the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models , which were announced in 2015. Taking into account the fact that since then three more generations of smartphones from Cupertino have appeared on the market, such a move is the most obvious, taking into account similar movements of Apple in previous years. The three-year period ended, so the iPhone 6s / 6s Plus goes to the sand. No surprise, we will not cry.
Apple cancels the smartphone … a year after its launch
It's a huge surprise to send the iPhone X to the obscurity , which has been withdrawn from the Apple Store offer today. Yes, you will find it at authorized dealers, as well as other discontinued models, but the resignation from the sale of the model referred to as revolutionary one year ago finally confirms that in terms of sales we were dealing with a dud. This is the first case in the history of Apple, when the last year's flagship is withdrawn from sales – it is clearly a huge patch of the company showing that it was probably overpriced here with the price of this model, although looking at the prices of the latest Apple smartphones, it was not that bad. By the way, it is puzzling that Apple has decided to continue the path chosen just with the model of the iPhone X. Withdrawal of this model from the sale may also be related to another issue – iPhone XS made its debut at exactly the same price as the iPhone X, so both smartphones just they cannibalized. And there was not much room for maneuver in terms of reductions.
The victim of illogical changes on the mobile market
The third of smartphones, which flew out of Apple's offer, is confirmation of not entirely interesting changes that affected the industry of mobile devices. Giant from Cupertino ended the sale of iPhone SE, a very successful marriage of this company with small, compact devices – this model has found a really large group of followers, but as you can see – not big enough to earn an interesting continuation. Great and pity and I hope that the industry will someday wake up from lethargy with the conviction that wearing a smartphone in a backpack is rather not very pleasant, because for now everything indicates that we will soon be calling from 10-inch kolubryn.
