TELUS discontinuing the iPhone 5 on September 28th

Apple is going to “brighten everyone’s day” on September 10th and unveil a slew of new colours for the iPhone – currently rumoured to be the entry-level iPhone 5C and the next generation iPhone 5S.

It’s expected that Apple will make the iPhone 5C available 10 days later on September 20th, then a week later bring the iPhone 5S to select countries. The 5C was release date was tipped by case maker Case-Mate earlier today. Rumours of September 27th for the iPhone 5S have been swirling for a few days now, but another hint comes from an internal doc we received that potentially indicates Canada will be one of the first counties to release the device, specifically on TELUS.

According to the “Device Discontinuation” doc that is dated August 29th, TELUS has put the iPhone 5 32GB and 64GB (Black) on the discontinuation list with the effective date of September 28th – one day after the rumoured availability of the iPhone 5S. Of course, nothing is confirmed until Apple gives the full details.

(Thanks tipster!)
