According to reports, an internal Apple memo stated that the “iPhone 6 Plus” will be listed as an “obsolete product” on December 31.
As early as when iOS 13 was released, Apple stopped supporting updates for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Apple Store retail stores and Apple authorized repair shops will provide products with repair services for up to 7 years, depending on the availability of parts.
It is understood that iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were launched in September 2014 and discontinued in 2016. They are the two most popular smartphones in the past, with screen sizes of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, respectively.
It is also the first batch of devices that support Apple Pay, using A8 chip, equipped with iOS 8 system, and upgraded camera function.
According to the official website information, the product will be regarded as an obsolete product 5 to 7 years after the product is launched, and the repair parts will be guaranteed for at least the first 5 years after the sale.
Even if the outdated product needs to be repaired, Apple will accept it, but it needs to look at the stock of parts at the time. It is likely that the repair service cannot be provided due to lack of stock.
If the iPhone 6 Plus was purchased in 2014, it has been about 7 years, while the iPhone 6 with a smaller screen will not be sold until 2018 in certain countries and will not be included in the official elimination list for the time being.
