This may not be even true but I can't help but wonder if this is some attempt to make people buy the 5S? Because if it were me I wouldn't want to buy a plastic phone! Let's be serious here! There will be people who buy it, but for a hundred or two more.. I would buy a 5S! Along with many other people I'm presuming! Also I have an iPhone 5, so technically Me and whomever else will have a discontinued phone! That's great so now we can walk around with discontinued products! Some of us take pride in our up-to-date apple products, and that would definitely squash that even though the iPhone 5 is a perfectly good phone! Ok so all this rant over a rumour? Yes because the thought is ridiculous to me! Hopefully it is just a rumour!
