As any Apple customer will know, its devices and technology are constantly being upgraded.

The tech giant has now issued a warning it will no longer sell certain models and will stop offering repairs on them. This is because they are expected to become slow by this point and it is generally easier to update to a new model with better features.

Since the first iPhone was revealed in 2007, Apple has had huge success with their phone and Statista numbers show they had the highest market share of any phone manufacturer in the last quarter of 2021, the Irish Mirror reports.

With iPhones so important to the world’s economy and everyday lives of people, some will be wondering if their old phone will soon become obsolete, while some will be marked as vintage.

iPhone models as late as the iPhone 6 Plus are set to become obsolete, according to Apple. These are also known as ‘vintage iPhones’ and mean “Apple stopped distributing them for sale more than five and less than seven years ago”.

The original iPhone and products all the way up to the iPhone 4s are now considered obsolete.

The full list is as follows:

The global mega-tech firm advised: “Owners of iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac or Apple TV products may obtain a service and parts from Apple service providers, including Apple Retail Stores and Independent Repair Providers, for a minimum of 5 years from when Apple last distributed the product for sale.

“Service and parts may be obtained for longer, as required by law, or for up to 7 years, subject to parts availability.”
