apple reportedly adding this iphone model to ‘vintage’ list
Apple is reportedly planning to add another iPhone to its vintage list of products this month. According to a report by MacRumors, the tech giant will be adding the iPhone 6 Plus to its vintage products list on December 31. Apple regularly adds devices to the vintage list that it has stopped distributing for sale more than 5 and less than 7 years ago. However, Apple Stores and Apple Authorised Service Providers continue to offer repairs for vintage products for up to seven years.
The Apple iPhone 6 Plus was launched by the company in September 2014 along with the iPhone 6. While the company discontinued the iPhone 6 Plus in 2016, the iPhone 6 was available in few regions until 2018, that is why it has not been added to the vintage list. The iPhone 6 Plus was one of the most popular smartphones the company has ever sold, thanks to the larger 5.5-inch display.
The smartphone was powered by an A8 chip. It was also one of the first smartphones to feature support for Apple Pay. The phone was available in gold, silver and space grey colour options and three storage options – 16GB, 64GB and 128GB. The company dropped the software support for the smartphone with the release of iOS 13 a few years ago.
Recently, the company also added its first Apple Watch that came out in 2015, with 38mm and 42mm models to the vintage list.
Apart from vintage products, there is something called obsolete products as well. Obsolete products, on the other hand, are those that were discontinued more than 7 years ago. The big difference is that vintage products do get hardware service from Apple whereas obsolete products get no support at all. Apple routinely updates this list and you can check the same on Apple’s support website.
