Every year Apple launches a new range of almost all of its products. The renewal of each of them makes the older models become obsolete. Not only because of their technology, but also because the hardware they carry with them does not allow the correct operation of the latest software versions. From time to time, Apple updates its list of models that are already a few years old and are no longer in optimal conditions to maintain support. this time the iPhone 6 enters the list of old models.
The iPhone 6 is added to the list of old Apple models
Apple’s policy includes two types of seniority. On one hand, we have old devices who are those who Apple has stopped distributing for sale more than five years ago but less than seven. On the other hand, there is what is called obsolete products what are those dispositios that stopped being distributed more than seven years ago.
There are some exceptions, especially in France, where there are different policies that can be consulted on the official Apple website. Other exceptions include all Monster-branded Beats products as obsolete regardless of purchase date.
However, the news these days is that Apple has added the iPhone 6 to the list of old products along with the following:
- iPhone 4 (8GB)
- iPhone 5
- Iphone 5c
- Iphone 5s
- iPhone 6Plus
- iPhone 6s (32GB)
- iPhone 6sPlus (32GB)
You have to remember that the iPhone 6 was the first device to come in multiple sizes, the standard model and the Plus model, and since then Apple has tried to keep that arrangement. Even increasing the range by adding the Pro or Pro Max model, as in the latest models.

These older devices are still serviced and serviced by Apple up to 7 years, where they would become part of the obsolete products. However, repairs are subject to the availability of parts, as well as legislative exceptions specific to each country.
