GADGET DESIGNER Apple will discontinue the original iPhone on 11 June, after which the firm will no longer support the device.
That’s according to a leaked document obtained by 9to5Mac, which revealed that Apple’s first generation iPhone will appeal only to hipsters as of next month, as it’s set to become obsolete following almost six years on the market.
This also means that those still using an original iPhone will no longer be able to get it repaired or serviced at an Apple store. However, hipsters now eyeing the ‘vintage’ iPhone model should note that the handset can still be repaired at other outlets as long as the phone is insured.
Apple launched the original iPhone in June 2007, and while it’s specifications don’t sound like much now it was one of the highest specification smartphones of the time. The original Apple iPhone features a 3.5in 320×480 touchscreen, which is relatively small compared to the 4in 640×1136 Retina display found on the iPhone 5.Read more

Analyst Brian White said that from discussions with officials at an unnamed “tech-supply chain company” during a trip to China he learned that the iPhone 5S will be available in two, or possibly three, screen sizes, Mac Rumours reports.
Mac Rumours reported that White said Apple now believes that one size per iPhone release does not work for everyone and offering consumers an option has the potential to expand the company’s market share.

Right to the end of last year, Macrumors reported that iOS 7 and the next-gen iPhone have shown up in logs.
We looked back and we found an interesting pattern: usually five months after the first logs about a new iOS-version show up, a new iPhone launches.
In that respect, we think that Apple is moving back to the June launch schedule for iPhone!
Think about it: what is their most important product? iPhone. And their second most important? iPad.
It is important to have a good line-up in time for the holiday season and that’s why, this year, they launched a new iPhone and new iPads in September and October, respectively.Read more
