Apple includes the world’s second most selling smartphone — the iPhone 6 to its vintage products list as it is surpassed 5 years of its discontinuation.
The iPhone 6 alongside the iPhone 6 Plus were introduced on September 9, 2014, at the special Apple event at Flint Center in Cupertino, California with the starting price point of $649 and $749 respectively.
iPhone 6 and Plus model becomes one of the most selling smartphones across the world even as it was the first iPhone lineup featuring bigger displays, 4.7-inch and 6.5-inch respectively, the A8 chip, improved cameras, and a more durable design.
iPhone 6 Plus was discontinued in 2016 (and added to the vintage products list earlier this year) while the smaller one was still available in the selected countries for around 2 years more, until 2018.
However, Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Resellers go on providing repairs for vintage products for up to seven years based on the parts availability.
For those who are unfamiliar, Apple includes the iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac, or Apple TV into the vintage products list which is crossed over 5 years and less than 7 years term of discontinuation. And more than 7 years passed since the last distributed product for sale are added to Apple’s obsolete products list.
