iphone 5 is discontinued

The iPhone 5 is discontinued.

Alas, farewell iPhone 5. We barely knew thee. As the world reels after Apple’s announcement of the new iPhone 5C and 5S, we’ve now learned the fate of their predecessor.

This comes as a shock because there have been reports that the 16GB version of the iPhone 5 would live on. Instead the iPhone 4S will become the infamous free phone as the generations move on.

I suspect this is because the iPhone 5 and 5C match almost in everyway (the 5C does excel in some areas and is a little thicker and heavier.)

Well thanks for the memories iPhone 5. It’s been fun!
