Apple announced Thursday morning that the iPhone 3GS is being discontinued.
News comes just one day after the new iPhone 5 was released.
iOS 6, which will similarly be released this month, is compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and iPhone 5.
“Launched in June of 2009,” says John Paczkowski of All Things D, “Apple’s iPhone 3GS has had a good long run. But with the iPhone 5 set to arrive in a little over a week, that run has come to an end.”
The iPhone 4 will become Apple’s new entry-level offering and has already replaced the iPhone 3GS in that spot in the Apple Store.
Preorders for the new iPhone 5 start tomorrow. On September 21st, they will ship in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore.
