Apple’s current flagship series iPhone 14 has outsold its predecessor, the iPhone 13. To be specific, iPhone 14 Plus which was launched as a replacement of iPhone 13 Mini is selling better than the Mini, shows latest findings of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC).

However despite performing better than iPhone 13 Mini
DSCC, based on all its findings, expects the cumulative share of iPhone 14 Pro models through April to be 63% in comparison to the 53% share for the iPhone 13 Pro models.
Despite a higher price point of iPhone 14 Pro series, the phones are flying off the shelves due to key reasons like Dynamic Island, Always on Display and 48MP wide rear camera, says the report.
iPhone 14 series comprises of four phones- basic iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max. While the non-Pro models are more or less the same as their predecessors, the Pro models come with serious upgrades over 13 series like the latest processor inside, an adaptive notch and better camera specification.
