Apple will be adding the iPhone 6 Plus to its vintage products list on December 31. The move will come more than five years after Apple stopped distributing the device for sale. The information comes from an internal Apple memo shared by MacRumors.
Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers will offer repairs for vintage products for up to seven years, subject to parts availability.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus both debuted in September 2014, proving to be two of the company’s most popular iPhone models. The devices brought larger screens to iPhone users, featuring 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch displays, respectively.
The iPhone 6 Plus was discontinued in 2016 but the iPhone 6 was still available through select retailers in certain regions until around 2018 and will not become a vintage product until later down the line.
Apple dropped support for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as of the release of iOS 13 a few years ago.
