APPLE recently updated its list of “vintage and obsolete products”, adding the iPhone 6 Plus.

Tech giants often value update list products are no longer for sale and products are at risk of being discontinued.

Apple added the iPhone 6 Plus to its “classic” list today.

“Products were considered vintage when Apple stopped distributing them for sale more than 5 and less than 7 years ago,” Apple wrote in a post.

In contrast, products are considered “obsolete” when Apple “stopped distributing them for sale more than 7 years ago”.

Earlier today, the Cupertino, California-based company added the iPhone 6 to their “classic” section.

According to the statement, users can find links to all Apple products the company considers “vintage,” including older Macs, iPods, and iPads.

‌iPhone‌ 6 Plus was first launched in September 2014 alongside the ‌iPhone‌ 6.

However, the phone was discontinued just two years later in September 2016, when the ‌iPhone‌ 7 and ‌iPhone‌ 7 Plus were released.


Apple prevented both the ‌iPhone‌ 6 and 6 Plus from receiving new software updates in 2019 after the company released iOS 13.

Interestingly, the ‌iPhone‌ 6 is not on the vintage list at the time of publication because it has been on sale for a longer time.

The 6 Plus was the first iPhone with a full HD display.

The device was also one of the first to feature Wi-Fi calling.
