Apple adds iPhone 6 Plus to vintage products list
Apple has added the iPhone 6 Plus to its list of vintage products, eight years after the device was introduced in September 2014.
Devices are added to Apple’s vintage product list when manufacturing ended more than five years ago. Apple and the official network of Authorized Service Providers will continue to offer repairs for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus until the device is added to Apple’s separate obsolete products list, which happens after devices have been discontinued for more than seven years.
Despite being announced alongside the iPhone 6 Plus, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 remained available with some third-party retailers after the larger 5.5-inch model was discontinued, meaning it has not yet been more than five years since manufacturing ended for the smaller model and that the iPhone 6 is not being added to the vintage product list at this time.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were Apple’s best selling iPhones of all time, featuring at the time an all-new design, Retina HD Displays, improved cameras and more. The devices released with iOS 8, with Apple stopping supporting the models with new software updates with iOS 13.
