The iPhone 6 Plus Will Go ‘Vintage’ At The End Of December


iPhone 6 Plus: It went on sale in September 2014, and was officially replaced as the top-of-the-line Apple a year later. The iPhone 6 Plus and its standard version stopped receiving official iOS updates a couple of years ago, and it is not surprising that it will go to the Apple list of its products classified as ‘vintage’.

Apple Vintage

We live in an age so technologically accelerated, that any new device is out of date in 6 months – 1 year on average only. Every 12 months there are replacements for the top of the range, and even video game consoles increasingly reduce generational replacement. For this reason, companies have lists of devices that they can still repair and those that already consider them too old, such as Apple’s.

Apple divides this list into ‘Old and Obsolete’ products. As stated on their website, “iPhone, iPad, iPod or Mac owners can obtain technical service and parts from Apple or Apple service providers for 5 years after the product is discontinued (or a longer period in cases where required by law). Although “Apple has suspended technical support for certain technologically outdated products.” But which is which?

Old products

They are those that were discontinued more than 5 years ago and less than 7. Obsolete Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod and Apple TV products will continue to receive hardware repairs from Apple service providers, including Apple Stores. , depending on inventory availability or as required by law.
