iPhone 5 32GB and 64GB to be discontinued?

A leaked internal document from Telus appears to reveal that the Canadian carrier will discontinue the 32GB and 64GB iPhone 5 models on Sept. 28.


The document hints—but doesn’t confirm—that Apple will discontinue those models, while continuing to sell the 16GB iPhone 5 as a mid-tier option between the upcoming iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. It’s unclear why the discontinuation would take place on the 28th—eight days after the likely new iPhone launch day—but an accompanying report suggests that Apple could stagger the iPhone 5C and 5S release dates by one week, which would be unusual.

This is not surprising it is similar to past Apple behavior. It makes economic sense to push people who want increased storage to the newer device. To make this an opportunity for Apple, it should consider re-imagine the iPod Classic as a media delivery system to iOS devices as well as a music player. Others have attempted mobile media storage without the blessing of using the iOS interface, and they are duds. If they did this, dropping older, but larger storage iOS devices would open up other business opportunities.
