The Sad News: No More iPhone 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, iPhone XR

Once iPhone 12 and other iPhone 12 models will launch, Apple may choose to drop the previous generation iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max and iPhone XR models.
Primary reason is stated to be availability of the iPhone SE 2020. It’s said to be a far better alternative to the current iPhone XR. So Apple will probably be pushing iPhone SE 2020 instead of selling iPhone XR at a cheaper price.
Apple also discontinued the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max when the iPhone 11 series was unveiled last year. Similarly iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max may also be discontinued. The iPhone 12 series launch has already been delayed by a few weeks due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
