Apple quietly kills the Slate iPhone rather than admit to poor anodization

    Take a look at the color choices for the iPhone 5S. See anything different about the black version? Yep. No longer does it have the familiar "Slate"-black anodization. And as suspected, it was mentioned that the 5C "replaces" the iPhone 5. Apple dropped the 5 as if it were the bastard child of the iPad 3.

    No iPhone 4-style public admission or consumer compensation.

    Somehow they managed to keep the issue mostly quiet for the past year - surely it can't be attributed to the sycophantic consumer-tech media :rolleyes:
