This will probably be the last year that the Apple iPhone 5s receives the annual iOS update. When this model receives iOS 12 starting tomorrow, it will be the fifth version of iOS to run the device. When the phone launched in September 2013, it came out of the box with iOS 7 pre-installed. This model was also the first to feature Touch ID, which is not offered on any of the recently unveiled 2018 iPhones.
What brings up this mention of the iPhone 5s is word that Walmart has refurbished units on sale for $147.68. This is the unlocked 32GB model in Space Gray compatible with GSM wireless providers like AT&T and T-Mobile. It features a 4-inch display carrying a resolution of 640 x 1136. The A7 chipset is under the hood and the camera combo, from back to front, weighs in at 8MP and 1.2MP respectively. Keeping the lights on is a 1570mAh battery.
If you're looking for a back up phone, or something for the kids (remember, iOS 12 features Screen Time allowing you to set limits on usage of specific apps), this deal might be right up your alley. And it comes with a 30-day warranty that can be extended. If interested, click on the sourcelink below.
