    What is the price of the 5S now that the SE is out? Where can you buy it with a discount? Is Apple going to drop the price of the 5S?

    It's been discontinued in the US. No clear official price drops I've noticed.

    With how cheap and modern the SE is I see no reason for anyone to buy the 5S.

    Are these locked to boost? I imagine so but it's worth asking.

    That boost mobile is all phones with a contract with a carrier. I am looking for unlocked 5S's.

    All of the phones from Boost mobile seem to be with a contract with a carrier so if you buy them, you'll have to pay the penalty to get rid of that contract. It is not just unlocking it.

    I've just checked Rogers website (a major mobile carrier in Canada), and 16gb 5S is $625... In comparison, 16GB SE starts at $500 while 64gb is $709...

    Cricket has them in silver for $199 (16GB) and $249 (32GB), 6 month contract.

    EDIT - sorry, I just saw further upstream that you were looking for an unlocked one.

    If you want to buy 5S, act quick. Apple is probably collecting all the remaining 5S' at mobile carriers' stores.

    I have already posted the lowest price even when paying for an unlock for the 5s . Where else are you going to get one for $99 to $149 ?

    Well Apple has not discounted the 6s which is far more understandable than them not discounting the 5s or 6.

    The 5s is still on display at my local store, while it may have been discontinued I do not think they are not available or why would it be displayed.

    In Italy (and the rest of Europe I guess) Apple just discontinued the iPhone 5S.
    here the iPhone SE starts at 509€ and it costs 609€ for the 64 Gb model...

    You can still find the iPhone 5S on several stores for about 350€ (16 Gb). A big deal for a still valid phone.

    Just visited Apple Store. CAD$600 for 16gb 5S and CAD$650 for 32gb. I don't think they will be discounted in Canada or NA
