  • Apple has Discontinued the Original iPad Air and iPhone 5S


    With the announcement of new products, Apple has deemed it the appropriate time to discontinue a couple of products at the same time.

    As confirmed by The Verge, Apple has indeed discontinued the original iPad Air, and the iPhone 5S. Apple has even taken a step further and replaced the older 4-inch iPhone with the newer model, the iPhone SE, on the companyís iPhone landing page. Where the iPhone 5S used to be listed, nestled in the top banner along with its newer iPhone brethren, is now hosting the iPhone SE instead.

    The original iPad Air is now discontinued as well, with Apple offering just the iPad Air 2 instead in that particular lineup. Considering Apple has just launched the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, this isnít too surprising, either.

    The iPhone SE starts at $399 for the 16GB model. To find a cheaper iPad, youíll either need to pick the iPad mini 2 for $269, or go with the iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 4, both of which now start at $399.

      I thought they made this clear at the media release. I guess they didn’t expressly say, but in the slide they showed it replacing the 5s in the iPhone lineup. I thought I remembered that anyway.

      Edit: Didn't mean to quote the article.

      No sense in selling iPhone 5S anymore. They probably don't have a street value of more than $200 even if new.

      With a Jailbreak on it I'd buy it for $400

      I know you from Australia but I was giving you a link for a cost estimate on a jailbroken iPhone 5S since you were offering a lot more.

      Thanks although the conversion rate sucks.. So I'd be paying around $350 still.
