In The Future iPhone 3GS May Be Out Of Production
After 3 years of iPhone 3GS production we will close it in the near future. We can do nothing because that’s just the way it is. Repeatedly appeared information that the iPhone 3GS production is coming to an end and after the iPhone 5 announcement the 3GS selling will be stopped. After all this is not surprising, don’t forget that Apple has been producing iPhone 3GS for three years. It is reasonable to assume that iPhone 4 8GB will replace the current iPhone budget model.
The Telegraph, citing sources among retailers reported that after with the new iPhone launch all smartphones will move one position down: iPhone 4 is likely to be offered for free with a contract, a new iPhone 4S 8GB selling price could reach $ 100 with a contract and the top model, of course, will be the iPhone 5.
It is not nonstandard situation and it doesn’t mean that iPhone 3GS future is going to the end at all, only officially. It means that soon you will not find this device in Apple store but you can always buy it on ebay or other market places.
However it is interesting to know the answer on one question. Will we see something new updates from iPhone Dev Team about iOS 6 unlock? For example, update for Ultrasn0w tool? However I think it won’t be because iOS 6 may be the last firmware for iPhone 3GS and we still hear nothing from iPhone Dev team about new iPhone unlocking solution. I know that it is not the strong argument but there is something to think about.
Well , it is only 3 days to wait for iOS 6 release and only after that we will see the whole situation around future times for iPhone 3GS and unlocking tool for it. However even after updating your 3GS model to iOS 6 you may unlock it using IMEI unlocking code which will give you permanent factory unlock. I’m talking about 3GS models with newer bootloader and such baseband as 05.16.05 and uther basebands which can’t be unlocked by Ultrasn0w.
