“Obsolete”, “vintage”: Apple retires three new products

All good things come to an end. Apple today adds several products to its list of products considered “obsolete” and “vintage”.

Certain iPhone and iPad models join the long list of products that Apple and resellers abandon on the side of the road. Don’t panic either, we’re talking about relatively old products here.

Apple considers these three devices outdated

End of clap for the iPhone 6 Plus which is now considered by Apple as an obsolete product, all over the world. Concretely, this means that approved suppliers as well as Apple Stores no longer offer hardware services for the smartphone. Products with this status are generally those that have exceeded seven years after the end of their marketing by Apple.

Launched in September 2014, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus brought their share of new features such as larger screens than previous models, but also support for Apple Pay. Important clarification: the iPhone 6 has been considered “Vintage” by Apple since 2016, but not yet “obsolete”. As for software updates, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have not been updated since 2019 with iOS 13.

Other Apple products are starting to show their age, according to Apple. This is the case of the 4th generation iPad mini which also joins the list of “vintage” references, that is to say more than five years after the end of marketing by the brand. Hardware repairs will still be covered by the brand in its official stores and at authorized resellers for two years, subject to the availability of parts.

Finally, the last on the list to become “vintage” are the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, but only in their “(RED)” variant. Indeed, this color was one of the first to no longer be offered by the American giant, so it is the first to bow out.
