iPhone 3GS supplies running low
- 03 August, 2011 01:41
The days of the iPhone 3GS look to be numbered with reports suggesting that supplies of the device are running low ahead of a planned discontinuation of the product in the autumn.
A number of suppliers and mobile networks around the world are reportedly seeing dwindling numbers of the iPhone 3GS, ahead of the rumoured launch of a next-generation iPhone in September.
The next-generation iPhone is expected to launch in September and though some reports suggested that Apple might keep the iPhone 3GS as its low-cost option when the iPhone 5 launched, evidence seems to suggest it will be scrapped.
It was reported last month that Apple would launch not one but two new iPhones in September, one of which would be a low-cost model, which if true would put the final nail in the iPhone 3GS' coffin. However, 9to5Mac speculates whether the reduced supply could hint at Apple giving the 3GS a makeover, upgrading the screen or processor.
