As expected, the iPhone 4 8GB will replace the iPhone 3GS in the market. After yesterday's announcement of the iPhone 5, this smartphone will become the most affordable mobile device from the legendary manufacturer. So what will happen to the "old" iPhone 3GS? You are right, he will be “killed” figuratively.
As Apple says, once the existing stocks of the smart phone are completely depleted, the third generation iPhone will no longer be released.
Apple has confirmed that the lineup will be represented by three mobile devices: iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5.
While the iPhone 3GS supports iOS 6, aging internals means the device won't be able to handle the new features of the operating system. Moreover, the latest iOS games require at least an A4 processor, so they won't work on the iPhone 3GS. It was therefore evident that the short age of the 3-year device would soon be over.
On Wednesday, Apple confirmed that the iPhone 4 will be offered to customers in the US for free, subject to a contract with a mobile operator, and the iPhone 4S will be priced at just $ 99.
