The iPhone 5 is an iconic model of Apple's phone products, the last version before they became A4 sized and unable to fit in your pocket.
Many have opted to keep the iPhone 5 rather than upgrade to the larger size and Apple even bought out the iPhone 5SE to cater to the popularity of the phone's size with updated software.
That is all about to come to an end according to tech experts, or as we here at Esquire.co.uk like to call them, tech-perts who believe that the popular model might be phased out.

Apple Insider pointed out that the new iOS 10.3.2 beta which was announced this week lacks a 32-bit device.
The newer operating system uses a 64-bit processor instead of the 32-bit used by the 5, 5C and fourth generation of iPad. This change to the iOS might be a hint that Apple are phasing out the older models.
Apple Insider commented that: 'More recently, users attempting to open 32-bit software in iOS 10.3 are met with the message, "This app will not work with future versions of iOS," a clear indication that legacy apps are on their way out. Apple continues its push toward an all 64-bit future and last year began warning iOS 10 users that 32-bit apps might negatively impact system performance.'
Though before you smash your screen in fury it is worth bearing in mind that this is a beta update and therefore still in testing, there's every chance Apple might also update the software to be compatible with a 32-bit processor
But we've been burned before, Apple. Headphone jack called, he says hi.
