RIP: iPhone 3GS

So long, iPhone 3GS. Apple has confirmed to AllThingsD that the 3GS will be discontinued, replaced by the iPhone 4 as Apple's low end option. Goodbye, old friend!

It's worth noting that even though it's being discontinued, it's still eligible for iOS 6. The 3GS was actually a proto-boring iPhone. It was great at the time, but it was also received as not new, not fresh and not worth upgrading from the previous iPhone. It's actually a familiar song by now. That didn't stop it from sticking around for more than three years, which makes it something like 600 in phone years. [AllThingsD]
