It could soon be the end of the line for the iPhone 4. The handset, which was first released in June 2010, probably won’t support iOS 8, according to Gotta Be Mobile. The last iPhone announced at a Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), the iPhone 4 was the first Apple handset to feature a Retina display. It was officially discontinued in the U.S. last fall following the release of the iPhone 5s. Until recently, the iPhone 4 was still on sale in Brazil, India, and Indonesia. The iPad 2 will also probably not support iOS 8. First launched in 2011, the tablet was officially retired by Apple earlier this year. At that time, the iPad with Retina display replaced the iPad 2 as Apple's entry-level 9.7-inch tablet. Apple is likely to demo iOS 8 next month at WWDC. The operating system should reach the public in the fall when Cupertino announces next-generation iOS devices. The next version of iOS could feature a HealthBook app, standalone iTunes Radio app, revised Maps app, and more.
