Which iPhones are considered obsolete or obsolete: Apple's list

It has been many years since 2007, when Apple announced and then launched the iPhone, a phone that revolutionized the mobile phone world.

With the number of iPhones reaching 15, Apple, as usual, is withdrawing some of its older models from service because it considers them… obsolete. First, some stop receiving security updates and then stop selling them.

iPhones that Apple has discontinued fall into two categories: old and obsolete. Vintage devices are those that have been out of production for five years, while obsolete devices are those that have not been sold for 7 years.

The iPhone 8 Red joined the legacy list recently, while the ψ phone, one of the best-selling models in Apple's history, joined the legacy category.

It was September 2014 when Apple announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Five years later, in 2019, the company stopped promotions.

The iPhone 6 Plus was the first device with a 5.5-inch display, which at the time was considered… bulky, but it was also the first to bring Apple Pay into our lives!

If spare parts are available, service can be carried out for up to seven years.
