Apple Will Stop iPhone 5 Production and Retailing For iPhone 5S

We are nearer to the launch of Apple iPhone 5S and 5C which have been slated for September 10th.

As we wait earnestly to see what exactly the fruit company packs into this new iteration of iPhone, new information have surfaced suggesting that Apple would stop the production and retailing of iPhone 5 in favour of iPhone 5S and 5C.

Initially, it was believed that iPhone 5, 5S and 5C would be sold altogether.  However analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI securities says that Apple may completely ditch the iPhone 5 for the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.

This move according to Kuo, would give iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C which do have a similar shape to iPhone 5, a better chance of selling strongly as compared to if iPhone 5 was being offered alongside the latest unreleased iPhones. What this means that only iPhone 4S, iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C would be selling.

Also, seeing that at the time iPhone 5C would be released, iPhone 5 may drop to the same price of iPhone 5. Instead of having two different Apple iPhone selling for the same price, it is best to take one of the shelf to promote the newer line of budget iPhone.

The iPhone 5S is expected to have a 12 mega pixel camera, finger print sensor, faster dual core A7 processor and a sharper screen display.

We can't wait for this iPhone 5S to be officially released. However, Apple taking off a present flagship phone (iPhone 5) for a newer soon-to-be released version is unprecedented and may not really happen as predicted by Kuo. However Kuo's predictions usually turn out to be correct.
