Apple to kill off iPhone XR and iPhone 11 Pro?

Apple is rumoured to be planning to stop making the iPhone XR and iPhone 11 Pro once the iPhone 12 launches.

That's according to the Twitter page, iAppleTimes, belonging to a respected leaker, who has claimed that the tech giant is planning on ditching the current handsets to make room for the upcoming device, due to arrive in October.

Apple's known to get rid of older devices as new ones are released.

The leaker also claimed that the iPhone 11 will still be available, but at a reduced price of $549 (£419), but the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max will not.

It's not known where this information came from, and as always with leaks, it's best to take the claims with a pinch of salt.

Apple confirmed last month that the next iPhone will be slightly later than usual.

Typically, the firm releases their new smartphone in September, but it will pushed back by a month, due to production delays due to the coronavirus pandemic.

During an investors meeting on July 30, Apple executive Luca Maestri said: "Last year we started selling new iPhones in late September.

"This year we expect supply to be available a few weeks later."

It's expected that there will be four versions of the iPhone 12 released, including their first 5G-ready device.
