Killed off as new smartphone arrives.

Apple has killed off its curvy iPhone 3GS to make way for its new iPhone 5.

The 3GS has lost its spot in the company's line-up of iPhone products after this morning's launch of the sixth-generation iPhone. The new line-up now includes the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and iPhone 4.

The iPhone 4S and iPhone 4 are now available for $679 and $449 in Australia, respectively.

The iPhone 3GS was previously available in the US for free on a two-year contract - a position the iPhone 4 has now taken over, pushing the 3GS out of the line-up as a result.

The iPhone 5, announced this morning, has undergone a complete redesign, according to Apple. Click through for a full list of the new specifications and design changes.

The smartphone will retail in Australia from Apple for $799 for the 16GB model, $899 for 32GB and $999 for the 64GB model.

It is 4G compatible and will run on Australia's Telstra, Optus and Virgin Mobile 4G networks.

It is available for pre-order on September 14 from Apple and will start shipping to Australia on the 21st. The new iteration of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 6, will arrive on September 19.
