Is iPhone 13 Mini Possible?

In general, iPhone 13 Mini may exist or may not! There are two kinds of voices.


Reason 1. Tradition

Although Apple will break the tradition once in a while, in most cases, it will still obey its tradition for its activities and plans. For the mini version of the iPhone, it seems that will become a new rule in the future iPhone product.

Reason 2. Practicality

For many years, people have been mocking Apple for its growing-size iPhone. And, the large iPhone isn’t convenient to carry in our daily life. Thus, it is useful to provide size options for users and they can choose the size they prefer. Some users prefer large displays while others like small ones.
