That the smallest model is $699 is a bite. I still think it’s a perception thing with many. That mini maybe shouldn’t exist at Cadillac tire/pricing. It didn’t have to.

If its popularity is running behind the others, I don’t think it’s the size itself but the pricing for that size, which, right or wrong, people see as a down-step.

Those larger models were always in that general price range. Then they stuck the mini in there at that $699(!) and then scooted the “regular” size up another $100. The regular 12 would be wonderful at $699 and the mini at $599. I think that would've helped. W(hen)TF did the baseline "non-pro" iPhone get to be $800?!?

If they raise them all even [i]more[/] today, vs. maybe the other way around…good grief.

Will that mean the non-mini/non-pro iPhone 13 might be $899?! Screw that. How about putting something nice/flagship in that ~$600 range as you managed to do for years and years?

I tell you what I "hate", all the great features in a "Max" phone. I'm not likely to ever get an iPad mini with cellular capabilities and that is what the Max feels like. No thanks. I have an iPad already. Give me the good cameras in the smaller/mid-sized phones. Make them thicker if you need. No need to give a camera bump, just even out the phone and fill the rest of the space with battery.

Totally agree. If Apple put out an iPhone Pro Mini with the same camera specs as the Pro/Max I bet it would sell like crazy.

People wouldn't mind paying $699 for it, I bet.

Yeah, don't hobble/lessen stuff and then jack it up $100. Who the hell does that?

Well, Apple.

I'm not even enough of a photographer or "pro" (whatever that means when applied to a phone) to ever look at those models, but the whole platform is slowly ending up. I thought that's the opposite of what should happen over time with stuff like this?
