Apple added its iPhone 6 Plus to the vintage list, indicating that the product has run its full production cycle. iPhone 6 Plus was launched over seven years ago, alongside iPhone 6. Thanks to it, Apple launched the big-screen iPhone in the market.
According to Apple, a product is added to the vintage list when the company stops distributing it for sale more than 5 years ago and less than 7 years ago. Other products added to Apple’s vintage list are: iPhone 4 (8GB), iPhone 4S, iPhone 4S (8GB), iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C.
Apple also has a list of obsolete products when it stops distributing them for sale for more than 7 years. “Monster-branded Beats products are considered obsolete regardless of date of purchase,” he added on the website.
According to Apple’s website, the company is discontinuing all hardware service for obsolete products, with the sole exception of Mac laptops. Mac laptop users are entitled to an additional repair period on battery power only. Service providers can’t order parts for outdated products, Apple said.
Adding a product to the vintage list does not mean that support for the product will end. Apple Authorized Service Centers will continue to provide repair service for the iPhone 6 Plus.
The first generation Apple Watch (38mm and 42mm) have also been added to the vintage list by Apple. The same goes for the iPod and early iPad models.
