Apple Lists The iPhone 6 Plus And iPad mini 4 As Obsolete And Vintage Devices

If you own an iPhone 6 Plus or iPad mini 4, now might be a very good time to consider upgrading. That’s after Apple added the two devices to its list of obsolete and vintage devices which means that getting one repaired could be almost impossible.

The iPhone 6 Plus was announced in September 2014 and was discontinued two years later.

The device has now been added to the obsolete list of hardware, which means that repairs or other hardware related services for the device will not be entertained at Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers. Devices like the iPhone 6 Plus are added to the obsolete list even years after they were last distributed for sale.

As for the iPad 4, that has now been added to the list of vintage products, “meaning that more than five years have passed since the company stopped distributing the device for sale.” The result is that Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers can continue to offer service on these tablets for the next two years, availability permitting.

Apple has also added the (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus devices to the vintage list, while the other colors continue to be saved thanks to the fact they remained on sale for longer than the red one.

The iPhone 6 Plus was particularly notable because of its size, although it’s comparatively small in terms of display when you put its 5.5-inch display beside modern iPhones.
