Apple finally discontinued the iPhone 5s


The famous iPhone 5s apparently has been discontinued by Apple. The claim is based on the fact that the device is no longer listed on the company’s official website. As you guys know, Apple unveiled a new smartphone this Monday which looks exactly similar to the iPhone 5s however it hosts comparatively far powerful internal components. Therefore the discontinuity should not be a surprise, though the official announcement in this regard is yet to come.

For the ones who still want to get their hands on the iPhone 5s, they can visit 3rd party sellers like Amazon and Ebay. The iPhone 5s was released with the Apple A7 chipset under its hood. It featured a 4″ 640 x 1136 pixel resolution screen. Appart from that its was the first smartphone ever to host a fingerprint scanner. You can have a look at the comparison of the iPhone 5s with the smartphone it was replaced by – the recently unveiled iPhone SE.
