Apple releases iPhone 14 / Plus / Pro, users can still buy iPhone 12 mini refurbished machine

On September 8th, Apple will hold a "Far Out" conference and is expected to release new products such as iPhone 14 / Pro, including iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, but no longer iPhone 14 mini.

Before the launch, Apple's official website Apple Store online store has been closed for maintenance, but if users want to buy the iPhone 12 mini directly from Apple's official website, they can also consider refurbished machines.

Apple added refurbished models to its online store back in July and added new inventory ahead of today's new iPhone 14 event. This suggests that Apple may be planning to sell the iPhone 12 mini...

"Apple has replenished its online store inventory with iPhone 12 mini refurbished models," iLounge found.

Apple refurbished phones are returned to like-new condition and come with the same warranty as new phones. The only difference is that they come in a more basic package.

The small form factor of the iPhone 12 mini appeals to those who want the same functionality as a standard iPhone but in a more portable size.

However, the mini didn't seem to prove popular enough to remain in the lineup. Apple has only launched two generations of the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini, but this year Apple is expected to move in the opposite direction, launching the larger iPhone 14 Plus to replace the iPhone mini.

The iPhone Plus is expected to have the same functions as the standard iPhone 14, but with larger screen size.

However, users may still need to upgrade to the iPhone 14 Pro Max if they want the latest and greatest features and a larger display. This includes some unique display features:

  • "While the iPhone 14 Plus will use the same display technology as the iPhone 13 with a 60Hz OLED panel, the display capabilities of the iPhone 14 Pro Max will go beyond that.
  • Based on multiple pieces of evidence and rumors, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will feature a new display design with no notch at the top of the screen. Apple will replace the notch with a pill-shaped punch hole that houses a Face ID sensor and a new front-facing camera.
  • Not only that, but the iPhone 14 Pro Max will also feature a ProMotion display with a refresh rate from 120Hz to 1Hz. So, for the first time, more expensive iPhone models will feature an AOD display so that even when "off" it will show some visual elements on the screen, just like the Apple Watch. "

Those keen on improving the camera will also need to buy the Pro top-of-the-line model.

"The iPhone 14 Pro models are expected to feature a new 48MP wide-angle lens (versus the current 12MP lens), which will support new video features, such as recording and playing 8K video for the first time on an iPhone. Rumors also suggest that the ultra-wide-angle lens will feature a larger sensor to capture more light, which results in better photos and videos in low-light scenes.

Not to mention that features like ProRAW photos and ProRes video will also be exclusive to the Pro model. "
