Is Apple set to stop making or supplying its iPhone 4, after recently launching the upgraded iPhone 4S? Canadian network TELUS has pulled future stocks of the smartphone’s 16GB original black version as of December 3rd – leading the tech community to ask the question of is it time for the previous model to be retired?
The iPhone 4 debuted in June 2010, and has since left Apple aficionados awaiting their next fix. In early October of 2011 came that much-anticipated successor model. Not the iPhone 5 everyone was looking forward to but an all-singing all-dancing (almost) upgrade which on the outside looks identical to big bro. With the addition of Siri voice command, iCloud storage and improved camera – it pretty much made the iPhone 4 redundant. And even after Apple dropped the price of version 4.0, for a few bucks more you could opt for all the upgraded iOS5 goodness of the 4S. For all the spec on the new release check out the Gadget Helpline’s release article – Here.
The iPhone 4S will become available in over 70 countries on 100 different network carriers and is the first Apple iPhone to become available on US Sprint and C-Spire networks. A predicted iPhone 5 sighting in 2012 also would suggest a good time for Apple to drop the dated gadget and focus solely on the fifth generation.
Is there any place left for an iPhone 4, except for that of online car boot sale eBay?
