That’s the fate awaiting some of the phones Apple currently sells in just a few months’ time. We’re anticipating a September launch for the iPhone 13, and that means that one or more of the current iPhones you can buy from Apple will disappear without trace.
As good as Apple’s current iPhone lineup is — and you’ll find several of the models Apple sells among the best Phones — the days are numbered for a few iPhones. Each fall, Apple introduces new models, and that means the existing lineup gets pared down. Some iPhone stick around, usually for a reduced price, but others are unceremoniously shown the door.
So which ones will it be?
iPhone 13: Release date, price, specs and leaks
Here are the best iPhones right now
That’s not something we’ll know officially until Apple’s iPhone 13 event in the fall. However, given how Apple’s handled iPhone launches in the past and rumors about this fall’s iPhone 13 release, we can make some pretty reasonable guesses about which iPhones may not be around for much longer.

That kind of information can help influence your iPhone buying choices. If there’s a model you’ve been eyeing that could be on the chopping block, you’ll know it’s time to buy that particular model sooner rather than later. (That said, even if a particular iPhone model drops out of Apple’s lineup, you might still be able to find it through a wireless carrier or a retailer.) Or, if you prefer a model that’s going to stick around, you could hold off for a few months and grab it once Apple lowers the price.
iPhone lineup reshuffle: What Apple has done recently
Last fall’s iPhone 12 launch saw Apple drop two phones from its lineup. The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max made way for the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, both of which debuted at the same $999 and $1,099 starting prices as their predecessors.
Three phones stuck around even after the iPhone 12 models arrived. The iPhone SE retained its place as the cheapest iPhone, available for $399. The iPhone 11 and iPhone XR remained, too, but saw $100 price cuts. That left the iPhone 11 at $599 and the iPhone XR at $499. The iPhone 12 lineup starts at $699, with the iPhone 12 mini.
