Say goodbye to the iPhone 5, with last year’s flagship smartphone from Apple set to be discontinued in the wake of the newly-unveiled iPhone 5S.
To my memory, that’s the shortest shelf-life of any iPhone to date. But it’s hardly surprising; not only did Apple reveal a new flagship handset tonight, but also a cheaper smartphone in the form of the iPhone 5C. Occupying the cheaper price point that the iPhone 5 would have slipped down into, it also sports similar specs to last year’s model, while giving Apple an all-new colourful product to promote at the same time. The iPhone 4 will now also be discontinued, unsurprisingly.
However, the iPhone 4S lives on! For those looking to get in on the Apple-action super cheap, the 8GB iPhone 4S will now become the free option on contracts.
