The iPhone 14 Plus isn't even technically out yet because it will launch in October and the non-Pro models are rather for the general public that don't have an alarm set for Apple events. People tend to prefer bigger phones so I guess the 14 Plus' time to shine will come soon. The minis have to many issues for being practical as daily drivers.
An early Apple iPhone 14 analysis report has offered up a rather negative opinion of Cupertino's decision to replace the iPhone 13 mini in the lineup with the iPhone 14 Plus. While things may not be looking too bright for the iPhone 14 Plus at the moment, at least the iPhone 14 Pro Max seems to be pleasing die-hard Apple fans.
