Apple iPhone 14 series is here and with the latest addition to the Apple product list, the tech giant has now stopped distribution of Apple iPhone 6. According to various reports, Apple has officially added the iPhone 6 to its vintage product list. According to the Apple website, it considers products to be vintage when Apple stopped distributing them for sale more than 5 and less than 7 years ago.
However, Apple will continue to provide services such as spare parts for seven years, as mandated by law. The Apple iPhone 6 was launched in 2014 and marked a major change in the Apple iPhone design. It was the first iPhone with a large screen and is often considered one of the most loved iPhone models.
The Apple iPhone 6 was the successor to the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. The iPhone 6 was launched alongside the iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6 series was the first device to feature a new design, NFC, and Apple Pay.
Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were launched in three variants – 16GB, 64GB and 128GB and came in three color options- Gold, Silver and Space Grey. The iPhone 6 sports a 4.7-inch Retina HD display and was launched with iOS 8. Apple provided software update on iPhone 6 to iOS12.
It may be recalled that Apple had already placed iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s in the vintage product category and iPhone 6 is the latest to join the list.
Apple discontinued the devices in 2019.
