I would’ve loved a Mini Pro! I’m not thrilled that the 13 Pro is a little larger than the X it’ll be replacing, but it’s time for me to upgrade this line & I refuse to not have the Pro features. It kind of sucks, but it is what it is.
I also thought about replacing my 11 Pro, as well, and getting both the Pro & Mini, but I’m not sure I want to get back into upgrading both phones at the same time again. But as I’m typing this, it kind of makes sense to do it because it’ll be better to carry a 13Pro & Mini vs a 13Pro & 11Pro…..UGH I hate when I enable myself
Yeah I think the danger though is if they do a Mini sized Pro, and also have a non-Pro version, it starts to dilute the product line. Even worse would be if they made it a slightly larger screen size say 5.8 like the X/XS/11 Pro to differentiate it. Now you've got a 4th resolution for devs to deal with just on the current lineup alone for app design. I suspect that's why they made the 12/12 Pro and now the 13/13 Pro the same screen size last year when they decided to bring the Mini. Still 3 screen sizes, but across 4 models.
