Did Apple Just Killed the iPhone 5s?

Yesterday, Apple unveiled the new 4-inch iPhone SE, with many of the innards of the 6s that came out back in September. But in doing so, the company has also stopped advertising the iPhone 5s. That device is no longer featured on Apple's website.

That is, nobody can no longer buy it. But hey, the website has a useful "compare" page to see how the iPhones stack up against each other when it comes to specifications. Check out the comparison before.

And here’s after:

The 5s was not bad at all.

Available for US$ 450 for the 16GB version and for US$ 499 for the 32GB version, the 5s rocked a 4-inch display (1136-by-640-pixel resolution at 326 ppi) just like the new iPhone SE. It had the A7 chip with an M7 motion co-processor, an 8-megapixel iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording capability, a 1.2-megapixel FaceTime camera, LTE connectivity, Touch ID with fingerprint scanning (unlike the 5c that was released at the same event in 2013), Wi-Fi calling, True Tone flash, and autofocus.

The device did not come with NFC or Apple Pay support, or 4K video recording, or Focus Pixels, or Voice over LTE. The battery lasted up to 10 days on standby, with up to 10 hours of talk time available on 3G — the new iPhone SE boasts 14 hours there.
