- Apple will reportedly add the iPhone 6 Pro to its vintage list on December 31st.
- The vintage products list contains all products that were discontinued over five years ago.
According to MacRumors, an internal memo was sent out to Apple employees today stating that the iPhone 6 Plus will be added to the Apple vintage products list on December 31st. This will mark the fifth year since Apple has stopped selling the device.
Repairs and services for vintage products are available for up to seven years or as long as parts are available.
The iPhone 6 Plus, introduced in September of 2014, was one of Apple’s best-selling smartphone models ever. It was discontinued after two years in 2016, while the regular iPhone 6 stayed available until 2018. This means that the regular iPhone 6 will not be added to the vintage list for about two years. Apple dropped software support for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with iOS 13 a few years ago but has continued to offer security fixes periodically.
The iPhone 6 Plus was one of the first iPhone models to feature Apple Pay and advanced cameras. It also had a very small base storage capacity of only 16GB. Through their larger form factor and more advanced parts, the iPhone 6 and 6 Pro changed the smartphone game in 2014.
