Apple has now added the popular iPhone 6 to its list of vintage products, with the device having not been sold for more than five years.
As noted by MacRumors, the situation with the iPhone 6 is an interesting one because it actually saw two launches, at least in some countries.
After originally arriving in 2014, it saw a second launch as a budget option a few years later.
The iPhone 6 was released in September 2014 alongside the iPhone 6 Plus. It was sold in 2015 as a lower-cost option following the launch of the iPhone 6s, and then discontinued in 2016 alongside the launch of the iPhone 7. It was reintroduced as a low-cost iPhone in select countries in 2017, and it continued to be sold until September 2018.
Apple had already added the iPhone 6 Plus to the vintage list earlier this year, with the larger version of the iPhone 6 having been a popular handset.
Vintage products are added to the list after they have not been sold for more than five years, but less than seven. Apple will still repair those devices, but only if it still has parts available.
After the vintage list, products are added to the obsolete list. At that point, you’re on your own.
