Apple has reintroduced the refurbished iPhone 12 Mini to its US website after ceasing the model’s sales post the iPhone 14 series launch last year. Initially offered with 128GB storage before its discontinuation, the iPhone 12 Mini has made a comeback over a year later, now available with a larger 256GB storage option and at a reduced price compared to its earlier iteration.
The Trend of the iPhone ‘Mini’ Series Continues
Following the release of the iPhone 15 lineup in September, Apple followed its pattern by discontinuing sales of the iPhone 13 Mini, marking the end of the ‘mini’ range. The iPhone 13 Mini, including its refurbished version, is no longer available for purchase.
However, surprisingly, within a short span of two months, the refurbished 256GB storage variant of its predecessor, the iPhone 12 Mini, reappeared on the US website. Priced at $529 (approximately Rs. 43,070), this newer iteration is $50 (approximately Rs. 4,165) cheaper than the previously offered 128GB model, which was priced at $579.
